Art Sales

While Leighton Art Centre sells art year-round in our Gallery Shop, through our Online Shop and during our Gallery Exhibitions, we also feature two very special annual art sales.

The Clothesline Festival & Art Sale takes place the first weekend in June and features a large selection of original art and fine craft, presented primarily in large event tents on our property. The event also usually offers live music, artist demonstrations, children’s art activities, face painting (by donation) and local food vendors. In 2020, due to COVID-19, the sale was presented exclusively online and was dubbed Clothesline Online 2020.

Our Christmas in the Country Art Sale kicks off in early November and runs through until our Christmas break begins. Fine craft and artworks by local artists are featured in the galleries of the historic Leighton home and on our online shopping site during November and December, in perfect time for getting a head start on purchasing seasonal gifts and getting into the Christmas spirit.

the entrance to Leighton Art Centre is shown, snow-covered and decorated with Christmas wreaths and lamps
