Mystery Art Sale

The Springs Mystery Art Sale at Ashawagh Hall is an anonymous exhibition of student, artists and celebrity artwork. The show takes place today through Sunday. Over 350 artists have stepped forward to donate varied 5x7” pieces of art. The work of professional artists and celebrities, such as David Salle, Ross Bleckner, April Gornik, Jimmy Buffet, Eric Fischl, Elizabeth Strong Cuevas, John Alexander and Dan Aykoryd, will be exhibited alongside the students’ work.

There will be over 1000 artworks for sale. All the artwork will be signed on the back only and sold anonymously for $20 each throughout the show. This is an exciting opportunity for art lovers to acquire original art for a tiny price while supporting art education.
