RECYCLE YOUR ART
For this event we will accept:
original framed and unframed art, prints and photographs
ACCEPTABLE ART FOR THIS YEAR is original hanging art, framed and unframed prints, and photographs. The works should be clean and in good condition. We would prefer framed works, with clean glass on pastels, water colors and photographs. Oils and acrylics typically do not have glass. Unframed portfolio pieces should be ‘shrink wrapped’ or covered in cellophane to protect the images.
WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN CRAFTS OR SCULPTURE THIS YEAR.
We will not accept superstore or mass produced prints, water damaged, moldy, extremely faded, torn or inappropriate subject matter as deemed by our volunteer workers; attractive and clean images are most likely to be sold, benefiting both you and the park.

PICK-UP of unsold donated work is no later than 2:30 on the day of the sale. If artwork is not picked up at the end of the sale, we will re-donate it to a consignment shop whose proceeds benefit Chester County non-profits (public services or the hospital).
PRICING & PAYMENT
Based on our research of the secondary (resale) art market, expect to sell your art for a range of 10% to 30% of the original price depending on overall condition and notability of the artist. Pricing is fixed (non-negotiable), so you are encouraged to price to sell (low).
Depending on response we may have space issues. Please commit early to be assured of a space. On the registration form there is a place to include the size and general description of your works to allow us to pre-plan an attractive arrangement.
