Absolutely Art hosts their annual The Re-Art Swap event, in their backyard at 2322 Atwood Ave in Madison. This event, where artists and non-artists alike come to trade art supplies, takes place on June 30th from 9a-3p.
The trades happen on a “leave what you don’t want, take what you will use” basis. Even if you don’t have anything to trade, they still would love for you to come and make a donation. Any money raised will be used to buy art supplies for local schools and communities.The Re-Art Swap is a green event so they ask that you bring your own bag to carry home the treasures you get from the Swap.
At the Swap you could find things such as frames, paints, new canvases, and even a vintage pottery wheel that is up for grabs this year. Many of the supplies are used, but some are brand new. You could even find fabric that is ready to sew at the Swap.
Meghan Blake-Horst from Absolutely Art joined us in studio to talk about this event.
