We’ve called it “The Most Exciting Fundraiser of the Year” and we named it the top Hamptons art moment of its debut year (2014)—and now the Springs Mystery Art Sale is back at Ashawagh Hall in Springs!

Benefiting the Spring School visiting artists program, this annual exhibition features hundreds of anonymous 5- x 7-inch pieces of art by local artists, celebrities and children, none of which are signed or labeled with the name of its creator. This exhibition and sale is really all about buyers acquiring art they love rather than trying to get something from the most famous or valuable name, and that makes it incredibly special and pure. Buyers will only learn who made their art after they buy it. And at $20 a piece—though certain works are auctioned for more—it’s a hell of a bargain! No wonder why people were lined up en masse to get inside before the opening on Thursday.
The show opened on Thursday, May 11 from 4–7 p.m. It continues today, Friday, May 12 from 4–7 p.m., and it will be open all day, 11 a.m.–6 p.m. on Saturday, May 13. Additionally on Saturday, there will be a The Festival Of The Arts from 12–4 p.m. with free creative workshops run by local artists for all ages in a variety of media. A closing party is scheduled from 4–6 p.m. on Saturday with the live auction for select pieces starting at 5 p.m.
Ashawagh Hall is located at 780 Springs Fireplace Road in Springs, East Hampton. For more info visit springsmysteryartsale.com.
