To kick off the summer, this weekend we’re having Life Lessons Garage Sale. We’ve asked artists to donate items from their studio or practice. The items aren’t capital “A” art, though—they’re old tools, abandoned sketches, forgotten ephemera that have been sitting quietly in the dark corners of studios. In the true spirit of garage sales, Life Lessons wants to offer up these items that might be cast away so they can find new life in new hands. All proceeds will go to Rockaway Artists Alliance.
