BLUEorange Contemporary invites you to sign up for this year's YART SALE!

Yart Sale is a gathering of some of the most talented emerging to established artists in the Houston area,  encouraging appreciation for, and acquisition of local fine artwork in the casual and friendly environment of a yard party in an established contemporary art gallery.

All artwork sells at or below $200, meaning local fine art is affordable and attainable for a first-time buyer, or for those who may not currently have disposable income for larger works but want to support the local art community and its artists. We strive to reach and welcome people who may not otherwise be able to afford the prices at other local fairs, galleries, or festivals.

For the artists, there are low participation fees and no commission taken on sales, which means all artists realize a 100% sale profit and can price their art in a way that brings their work to a much broader audience.

Artists of various fields are welcome to participate!

Painting, Drawing, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, Ceramic, Jewelry, Craft, etc.
