Tower Gallery to host 14th Annual Attic Sale | News, Sports, Jobs – SANIBEL-CAPTIVA
The 14th annual Tower Gallery Attic Sale takes place from October 23rd to 31st from 10am to 4pm
For the first three days, tents filled with art are set up outside, with the art also being located inside the gallery and on the veranda. From October 26th to 31st, the gallery continues with art construction.
The event offers art enthusiasts and gallery supporters the opportunity to browse and purchase works by some of the cooperative’s award-winning artists at significantly reduced prices. It’s also the gallery’s way of giving back to the locals and the community that it supports year after year.
Tower Gallery represents over 25 local artists working in a variety of media including sculpture, oil painting, watercolor, acrylic, raku, ceramics, photography, jewelry, and more.
The event is also an opportunity to meet the artists and learn firsthand about their work.
“The works of art in the tower are always superior and are constantly changing.” Artist Kelly Morrison noted that much of the work for sale came from the year-round rotation of the works on display.
“It could be that there was a piece in the gallery that someone had an eye on, and it might just happen to end up in the attic sale.” Artist JoAnne Bedient added. “People like to rummage through trash cans and the framed pieces that aren’t on the wall. It’s like walking through your grandma’s attic. “
Providing high quality art at lower prices not only benefits the community but also the artists, who can use the money to buy materials to create new works. Selling is an opportunity for all co-op artists to get involved with the gallery and the community.
“We are a cooperative and we love this gallery.” said Morrison.
To avoid long lines and maintain social distancing during the event, there are several places outside and inside for purchases to be paid for. Participants are asked to wear masks and follow CDC protocols.
