The event will also includes raffles and a free glass of wine with every art purchase, sponsored by Lowery’s Liquors. A $5.00 pop-up lunch, sponsored by Dazies, will be available at the art show.
The annual event also sets aside a portion of table fees to be donated to local food pantries.
The popular event sees hundreds of attendees a year, with last year’s event ringing in nearly 800 visitors.
The event’s many sponsors include Welcome Home Real Estate, Quaint, Sole Luna, De Mole, and the Sugar Room.
Attendees will receive a “Skillmanville” pin, good for 15 percent discounts at Skillman sites like Claret, the Dog & Duck, Copper Kettle, Aubergine, and more.
Sunnyside Artists was founded in 2007, and is made up of over 200 visual artists from the Woodside and Sunnyside area, along with 400 art supporters. The first event for the collaborative was a fine art fair show, which celebrated its tenth year over the summer. A crafts show is an add-on requested by the community.
The full lineup of artisans at the Sunday event are listed on the event flyer.
