75th Clothesline Art Sale
The 2021 Clothesline Art Sale is almost here! Clothesline is one of the most beloved and affordable art traditions in the Hamptons since its inception in 1946. For 75 years, it has provided accessible artwork to the community, while supporting the local artists who thrive here. Throughout our history, great artists such as Alfonso Ossorio, James Brooks, John Little, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, and Elaine and Willem de Kooning have shared their talents to support Guild Hall in this unique annual fundraising effort.
Over 300 artists enter the sale each year and art lovers everywhere flock to Guild Hall looking for their next masterpiece. Works range in price from $75 to $5,000 with all proceeds split 50/50 between the artist and Guild Hall.
While we celebrate our 90th Anniversary this year, we continue to reimagine our programs and how we can bring them to the public safely. We are so excited to continue the tradition of Clothesline in its 75th year by holding the sale outdoors on the grounds of Guild Hall following all social-distancing protocols and government safety guidelines.
We are also utilizing a touchless online-only purchasing system that will allow for safe and easy check-out, while also allowing you to shop from the comfort of your home.
