The New Haven Paint & Clay Club (NHPCC) and the Ely Center of Contemporary Art (ECOCA) are co-sponsoring a fundraising Postcard Art Show and Sale. This fundraiser will comprise of donated 5x7 inch original artworks to be sold on Thursday, September 26, at 6 – 9 pm at ECOCA.


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.

Opening : New Haven Paint & Clay Club Annual Members Exhibition

Public Reception:  Sunday, December 3, 1 – 3 pm

In 1961, the The New Haven Paint & Clay Club found a home for its exhibitions at The John Slade Ely House, where it now sponsors its exhibitions yearly.

In 1900, a group of Connecticut artists met and formed the NHPCC, now one of New England’s oldest, and still active, arts organizations. New Haven was chosen primarily because of the Yale School of the Fine Arts, where many of the artists had studied. Many of the important American artists of the 1900s were represented in the Club’s early exhibits.
