Yorktown Community Plant Sale Artist Invitation 2020
Fri. and Sat., May 8 & 9 – YORKTOWN PLANT SALE, 9 AM to 3 PM Friday and 9 AM – 1 PM Saturday
This plant sale is sponsored by the Celebrate Yorktown Committee. Yorktown Onions, perennials, and more will be for sale, there will be speakers on gardening topics, botanic artists from On the Hill Gallery, a local Idea Garden will be open, and “Gently-Used” Garden Treasure Market, including gardening books. Yorktown Master Gardeners will be on hand to assist and advise. At Yorktown Baptist Church. 703.581.7308
The Yorktown Community Plant Sale sponsored as a fundraiser for Celebrate Yorktown Committee is giving botanic artists from On the Hill Gallery the opportunity of participating in their event. If you plein air paint, you are invited to come and set up an easel and paint. There will be views of the sale, a local Idea Garden, and plenty of botanical samples that could inspire your painting. If you photograph nature, you are invited. If you have cards with botanical images, you may set up your cards. Artists will be allowed to set up their works, promote their work, and sell work independent from the sale, but as it is a fundraiser, you are asked to make a 10% donation to CYC from your sales. You may sell your works throughout the two days of the sale. All set-up and display materials will be the responsibility of the artists.
No pressure. My idea is the community would enjoy witnessing art being created around the theme of gardens and nature and your work would be a good promotion for On the Hill Gallery and how we support the community.
The money made from the sale goes to the Celebrate Yorktown Committee, which is where some of our grants for education come from. This is not a “huge-huge” event but is a fun place to connect and contribute to your community.
Please contact contributing gallery member, Tenley Raithel, Yorktown Community Plant Sale coordinator, if you are interested in participating at the sale. email@example.com 703-581-7308
One more thing: At the Plant Sale, the Gallery is also interested in supporting a community art project or Make and Take. If you are interested in helping out with this, please contact Tenley as well.
