Saint Petersburg, FL (March 28, 2016)

Local Artist Coralette Damme, aka The Crafty Hag will host her annual the 'yART Sale' on Saturday April 2, 2016 from 9 AM to 12 PM.
"It's like a yard sale, but for art", said Damme. The artist uses this event to clear space in her studio and to offer art collectors and fans an opportunity to get some original artwork at reduced prices. "I tend to make a piece and move on... because printmakers deal in multiples, I have literally truck loads of finished work that I need to find homes for", she said. Damme's specialty is printmaking but she also paints and sews. "There will be framed work and unframed, work on paper, on wood, and on fabric. Just about everything you can imagine."

This year's event is being held in preparation for an upcoming studio relocation. "I've found a new place with double the work space so I'm excited to be moving in to a new studio in April, but I can't take all of this art with me, I need a clean slate when I get there!" Damme says. Last year's yART sale was very popular and the artist has hopes this year will be as well attended. "People loved the 'seconds'. In the handmade process not everything comes out perfectly so some items are great deals. I'll have misprinted towels and other items that are wonderfully functional but just not retail ready".


The yART Sale will be one day only, April 2nd, in the front yard where her studio is located - 2021 12th Street North (in St Petersburg's Euclid St Paul neighborhood). More information about Coralette and her artwork can be found at www.craftyhag.com
