How does it work?
You will price your own pieces and deliver to PTSA. PTSA will display the art during the event and take payments on-site. Think of it as a consignment sale.

Deliveries will be accepted at PTSA during the week of October 2nd. Exact dates and times TBA. Your paperwork will need to arrive sooner.
I have an interesting story that makes my piece special; may I share that?
The provenance of a piece makes it much more interesting and appealing to buyers. We encourage you to give as much information about the artwork as you can; where it was purchased, why did you choose it, did you know the artist? There will be a form to complete for each piece where you can add all of this information. The provenance will be displayed with the art. We will not be posting the owner's name.
What if my piece doesn't sell?
All unsold art will be the property of the original owner and available for pick up immediately following the event.
