Event Details

Saturday, June 11th from noon to 4pm.

Free and open to the public.

Sell, swap, share and show!

How often have you searched your studio for a particular tool only to find something you had forgotten you have, or never used and wondered why you bought it in the first place? And how many of these items did you buy in duplicate or triplicate because you could not remember that you already had it, and now it just collects dust?

Join the Society on Saturday, June 11 at 12 noon for Summer Sweep, SoS’s White Elephant sale that will help you to de-clutter your studio and make way for all the amazing new tools you must have for the exciting Fall season of workshops. We are asking you to sell unwanted materials, books, papers, nibs etc. for bargain prices and to donate all unsold items to teachers in the New York City public school system, which as you probably know, is woefully underfunded in its art departments. Your unused things will bring much pleasure to young students, and just might provide the catalyst that will launch them into a future in the arts. And maybe calligraphy too!

And there is more! Please bring 5-10 hand-lettered envelopes that you have received from your calligraphy pals to mount on the wall and to create a gallery that showcases the infinite way to design an envelope, lifting it from the ordinary to the fanciful. 

There will be no charge for table space, but we do ask that you let us know if you plan to participate so we may be adequately prepared.
