Check the attic, the closet and the garage for gently-used wall art pieces and donate them to the Attic Art Sale to help raise funds for art education in Redlands. Sponsored by the Redlands Festival of Arts (RFA) and the Redlands Art Association (RAA), the Attic Art Sale is a two-day art event with over 300 pieces of art that might typically be purchased in a gallery, but at bargain prices that could yield some lost treasures.

The sale opens Friday, March 1, with a $25 per person cocktail party preview sale, 5:30 to 8:00 pm, at The Museum of Redlands (MOR), 700 Brookside Ave.  The collection opens to the public on Saturday, March 2, from 8 am to 3 pm.

Event organizers are seeking donations of wall art, which can be dropped off until Thursday, February 28 at the offices of Lois Lauer Century 21 Realty, 1998 Orange Tree Lane, from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday thru Friday, and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.   

Art donors with questions should call Shirley Harry: 909-214-7179 or email her: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  For general information or to purchase preview sale tickets, call the RAA at (909) 792-8435.

Shirley Harry, Event Chair, said, “This is a wonderful opportunity to edit your wall art collection and share art that you’ve enjoyed, but no longer have a place to display.  Best of all, you’ll be helping us raise badly needed funds for arts education programs.”

People often call the RAA and the RFA to ask what they can do with inherited artwork or pieces that they’ve purchased and no longer want.  Unfortunately, Harry says that it’s harder to sell art on the secondary market than one might think.

This fun event offers art lovers an opportunity to donate their artwork to a local charitable organization for a potential tax deduction. Art donors will fill out a donation form listing the artwork and its value, but will need to consult a tax professional to comply with IRS rules.

Artists for Art's Sake is an annual fundraising exhibition to benefit the art education programs at the Millard Sheets Art Center, Fairplex. Located in Pomona, CA the Millard Sheets Art Center provides year-round art exhibitions and art education for students of all ages. Established in 1936 as the Fine Arts Program of the Los Angeles County Fair, the Millard Sheets Art Center was "the first major gallery dedicated to art" in Los Angeles County. Our current programs continue the long tradition of acceptance and appreciation of all art forms and artists.

Artist participants in this inaugural exhibition have the opportunity to exhibit and sell their artwork to an appreciative audience in support of the education of our visual art students. Entry fees and artwork sales will generate funding for such programs as Discovery Arts for middle school students in the Pomona Unified School District and Free Family Workshops for children and their families.
