There are figurative paintings, landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, closeups of animals, barns, boats, cars, scenes of Princeton and other landmarks to collect. If you enjoy the thrill of the hunt, it’s a fun event to bring the whole family. All artwork is for sale with GSWS coordinating sales.


The sale will run for three consecutive 4-day weekends beginning Thursday, November 16th. and will continue -- on a Thursday-to-Sunday schedule -- ending on December 3rd. (Closed Thanksgiving.)

As a way of giving back to the community, GSWS will donate 15% percent of the art sale proceeds to Mercer Street Friends’ Send Hunger Packing project. Mercer Street Friends is a local non-profit whose mission is to build alliances and provide integrated services for children, and their families. Their Send Hunger Packing program provides supplemental meals on the weekend for children K- sixth grade so that they are ready to learn during the school week.
