South Park Arts Announces 9th Annual Art Under $100 Holiday Sale

Monday, November 11th, 2013


Contact: Wendy Woldenberg

(206) 898-8778


The 9th Annual Art Under $100 sale is December 7, in Seattle’s South Park neighborhood with more artists than ever before.

When:    Saturday, December 7 from 2:00pm-9:00pm

Where:  South Park Community Center8319 8th Ave. S, Seattle, 98108

Price:      Free Entry


Artists from South Park and beyond will knock your stockings off with original work not seen at a typical holiday sale. This year, we’ve packed in even more talent. Over 50 artists will showcase a diverse array of art, including painting, sculpture, neon, jewelry, clothing, photography, glass, letterpress and more.  And everything’s affordable with nothing priced over $100.

Beloved elements of past sales return: Groove to DJ dpauly and DJ Stack as they spin records from their booth high above us in the scissor lift.  Create your very own masterpiece with the Makery, a mobile art lab that runs on recycled materials and creativity.  Sip wine, enjoy beer, feast on yummy appetizers. And support local art–every 20 minutes, lucky winners get their pick of art donated by participating artists. All proceeds go to South Park Arts.

What’s new this year? Substantial fare from two food trucks: Muy Macho and 314 Pie. Plus Slate Coffee Roasters will keep you going as you discover treasure after unique treasure.

It’s true. It’s possible to actually enjoy holiday shopping.  For proof of all the fun, click on the photo below for an amazing 5-minute time lapse video of last year, courtesy of our friend Jenna Pool. Don’t miss the party of the season!

Art Under $100 Needs Volunteers!

Sunday, September 29th, 2013



See that crowd there? That’s the throng of happy shoppers at Art Under $100 2012. What keeps them so happy? Beside the incredible art and atmosphere, it’s a crew of helpful elves behind the scenes. The AU100 volunteers are a cheerful and capable bunch that want to support South Park, their favorite local artists and art in general.

We need help setting up and breaking down before and after the event. And we need help serving food and drinks, selling merchandise and most of all selling raffle tickets! (If you like dressing up—in costume or all elegant-like, chatting up the crowds and bringing in the cash, this is the fun post for you.)  Shifts are a super easy two hour commitment, leaving you plenty of time to shop for yourself.

Want to see the AU100 Volunteer Army at work? Check out this amazing video from last year, courtesy of Jenna Pool. 

If you want to be part of a very fun evening, contact for more information.


The AU100 2013 Application: Available Now/Due by Sept 26th!

Sunday, August 18th, 2013

If you’ve been wondering, Yes! Yes, it’s time. The application for Art Under $100 2013 is out right now.

And no, it doesn’t mean the most beautiful Seattle summer ever is ending. No way. It just means it’s time to do this one pesky item before you head back out to the lake or deck party (or studio for you industrious artists).

There are some things to be aware of as you get your application in ship shape:

1)      We’ve entered the modern world! The application is finally online! No more printing, faxing, stamps or checks needed. You can do it all, including submitting images and paying your booth fee — all in one place. We’re so happy to be all fancy like this, but let us know of any glitches you find in the comments below or on our FB page.

2)      There’s a new booth fee structure, depending on your South Parkian status. You’ll see the categories in the drop-down menu. Select the one that applies to you.

3)      Depending on the number of applicants, we may need to do a jury selection. We have a finite amount of spots and lots of interest, so please fill out the application thoroughly and pick your images wisely.

4)      Speaking of images, spend some extra time getting quality pix of your work. Pictures can play a big part in getting you accepted in the sale, and if you’re in, they’re great for getting more people in the door and more sales at your booth.

You’ll hear back by October 4th if you’re in. So get this taken care of, then put on some SPF and get back out there. (Or back to work, you busy little elf, you!)
