Because of its success last year, the Haywood County Arts Council is bringing back its planned giving exhibition, ArtShare, from Sept. 4-27 at Gallery 86 in Waynesville.
This unique project is a service to help art collectors or estate agents sell one or more pieces of art with the proceeds being split between the collector and the Haywood County Arts Council. Collectors may want to sell art for a reason such as down-sizing a home, a death in the family, moving to a new home, or a change in one’s taste in art. ArtShare is not designed for direct sales from the creating artists.
The seller will receive 70% of the proceeds and the Haywood County Arts Council will receive 30% as a seller’s commission or the seller may choose to donate the entire proceeds of the sale to the Council.
An opening night reception will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 5 at Gallery 86. There will also be another showing at HART Theatre from Sept. 25 through Oct. 12.
