Register For The Clothesline Art Sale

The Clothesline Art Sale is one of the most beloved and affordable art traditions in the Hamptons since its inception in 1946. For 76 years, it has provided accessible artwork to the community, while supporting the local artists who thrive here. Throughout our history, great artists such as Alfonso Ossorio, James Brooks, John Little, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, and Elaine and Willem de Kooning have shared their talents to support Guild Hall in this unique annual fundraising effort.

The 2023 Clothesline Art Sale is here! Over 300 artists enter the sale each year and art lovers everywhere flock to Guild Hall looking for their next masterpiece. Works range in price from $75 to $3,500 with all proceeds split 50/50 between the artist and Guild Hall.


  • We accept a maximum of three (3) pieces per artist, priced anywhere between $75 to $3,500.
  • Works must be no larger than 45” X 45”, including the frame.
  • At least one piece should be priced at $500 or less. Please keep in mind when pricing your pieces that one of the great features of this sale is the accessibility of affordable artwork to the local community.
