The Art Sale which will take place at 10am on Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd June 2013 consists of a great display of paintings by the artists mentioned above and other artists in the community.  Each painting has a price tag attached.  To purchase a painting you just tear off the the bottom part of the tag and give it to the cashier. Once you have torn the tag the painting is considered sold to you, so choose carefully. If you accidentally tear off a tag just let the cashier know straight away.
