The Clothesline Art Sale is one of the most beloved and affordable art traditions in the Hamptons since its inception in 1946. For 76 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 $3,500, with all proceeds split 50/50 between the artist and Guild Hall.

The 2023 Clothesline Art Sale is dedicated in memory of Barbara McClancy, a longtime volunteer who was the heart and soul of this event.
