Clothesline Art Show

About the Clothesline Art Show

We are excited to announce the inaugural Clothesline Art Show on Saturday, October 17, 2020, with a Preview Party on Friday, October 16. Capturing a long-time tradition where artists would gather and hang their work on clotheslines to exhibit and sell, we hope to create a beloved and affordable art tradition putting “art within reach.” We invite you join us in this celebration of St. Louis regional art and artists.

The Clothesline Art Show is a new, free community event that will feature a diverse collection of work by St. Louis artists at a range of price points to satisfy the seasoned collector as well as those who have never purchased local art before. Our inaugural event will be held at the St. Louis Artist Guild in Clayton, MO. Artists will receive 50% of their sales with the remaining 50% benefiting the many arts and arts education programs of the Arts and Education Council.

Artwork submissions are open through July 31, 2020.

Submit your artwork

The Clothesline Art Show is presented by the Arts and Education Council’s Muse Society, a leadership giving society ideal for women who are inspired by the power of the arts to shape a more vibrant community for all.

Thank you to Barbara Goodman for sponsoring the Preview Party!
