Show and Sale Specifics
Event location: Ely Center, 51 Trumbull Street, New Haven, CT 06510
Date/Time: Thursday, September 26, 2019, 6 pm sharp
Entrance Fee: $5 at the door. No fee for artists who contributed work for this event.
Process that will be used to match the 5x7 artworks with event participants:
Names of all attendees wishing to purchase work will be collected and placed in a jar
Between 6:00 and 6:45 pm, attendees will have the opportunity to view a display of all the works available for sale
Beginning at 6:45 pm, names will be drawn from the jar. Participants will be able to select one artwork for $20, in the order that their names are drawn. A volunteer will remove the selected piece from the display wall and process the purchase. All payments will be made in cash or by check.
Once a name has been drawn from the first jar it will be placed in a second jar for a second chance to purchase another artwork.
Once all names in the jar have been called and those participants have received their artwork, the second round of selection will begin. Names drawn from the second jar will be returned to a third jar for a third chance to purchase a work. We will repeat the process until either no artwork or no willing purchaser remains.
Those who arrive after 6:45 pm will have their name added to the current jar.
During the evening there will be music and refreshments. The goals for the event are to raise funds for both the ECoCA and the NHP&CC, and for participants to enjoy themselves and take home a unique, affordable artwork created by NHP&CC member artists.
