The ArtSalon’s SECOND ANNUAL RED DOT DASH Benefit Exhibition at 33 Hawley in Northampton will be on:

Friday, November 22, 2019, 5:30 – 8 PM – Get ready for an exciting opportunity to start/add to your collection or finish your holiday shopping early! Choose from over 130 original artworks up to 10×10″ all priced at ONLY $88. All works will be sold ANONYMOUSLY. Whose work will you be on the lookout for?! Come early and claim your favorite piece. It is a DASH after all!

This event is FREE and open to the public. 

Since 2009, The ArtSalon has introduced to the public some of the area’s most vibrant artists. These selected artists speak about their work in an engaging, fast-paced image presentation, followed by a Q & A session. The ArtSalon wants to provide an honorarium for these artists for their time and effort. To fund this endeavor APE@Hawley will host The ArtSalon’s SECOND ANNUAL RED DOT DASH Benefit Exhibition at 33 Hawley, a project of Northampton Community Arts Trust, on Friday, November 22, 2019, 5:30-8pm.

The RED DOT DASH will offer an affordable and exciting way to add to a collection, support art makers (50% of a sale goes directly to the artist), and fund honorariums at the same time! Buyers have the opportunity to acquire original 10” x 10” sized 2D works and 10” x 10” x 10” sized 3D works by established and emerging artists for ONLY $88 EACH! Each piece will be exhibited ANONYMOUSLY and is offered on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS. The identity of the artist will be revealed only after the work is purchased.
