Call for Art: Artists’ Archives Sale

Call for Art: Artists’ Archives Sale

Current members of the Harlow Gallery / Kennebec Valley Art Association (Click here to join.)

Harlow Gallery artist members are invited to participate in our upcoming Artists’ Archives Sale which runs from November 17 through December 24, 2017 at 100 Water Street in Hallowell. The purpose of this sale is two fold: first, to give artists a chance to pass on older artworks from their archives for lowered prices; and second, to provide an opportunity to sell print reproductions – which the Harlow Gallery typically does not allow in other exhibitions.

This sale will take place in the lower gallery at our 100 Water Street location. The Holiday Pottery Shop, a program run by Central Maine Clay Artists, will be set up upstairs. Open hours for both the Artists’ Archive Sale and the Holiday Pottery Shop are: November 17-19 and November 24 – December 24, 10-6 daily.

  • I have not been home. Just getting through all my mail I would love to bring a card display and ornament display and some prints. But I would have to make an appt. to bring them. The 27th, 29th, or 30th. The card stand is vertical and turns. Please advise. The ornaments would be on a stand.

    • Hi Leslie, That sounds great. Thanks for checking in.
