Realtor plans used art sale in Glenwood

After years of watching clients struggle to match their art collection to their new homes, Glenwood Springs Realtor Bonnie Daniels is tackling the problem with a “Gently Viewed” art sale.

The event, which Daniels describes as basically a garage sale or flea market for preowned art, takes place from 4 to 8 p.m. Oct. 26 at the Glenwood Springs Golf Course Clubhouse.

“This is an opportunity for original works of art and unique prints to find a new home,” she explained.

Sellers set their own price, with most original art falling in between $50 and $400. The sale will include some cheaper options, and work from well-known artists may run more. Some may choose to bargain, while others may stand firm on posted prices. Space is limited, so anyone interested in selling their old art should email as soon as possible.

No credit cards will be accepted, so buyers should plan to bring cash or checks.

Daniels sees it as an ideal time for the sale with the Glenwood Springs Art Guild’s Fall Festival on hiatus. If it’s successful, she thinks it could be come an annual event and potentially a fundraising opportunity for a local nonprofit.

“I don’t want to compete with the local galleries, but there is a need. Everyone likes the idea,” she said. “I’m always nervous to try something new, but I actually think we’re going to have a great turnout.”
