The Arts Council of Princeton is pleased to announce the return of Sauce for the Goose, its annual holiday arts and crafts sale, from December 2 through 22, at the Paul Robeson Center’s Taplin Gallery. This year’s sale is bigger than ever, featuring more than 30 local artists and artisans.

The sale features a mix of fine art and functional crafts, including paintings, drawings, functional and decorative ceramics, art glass, holiday ornaments, greeting cards, photography, jewelry, hand knit fashions, felted and beaded work, and more.

The Arts Council will also offer a special members-only discount. All members will receive 10% off their total purchase throughout the entire duration of the sale. Still not a member but want to take advantage of the many perks? Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Arts Council can purchase a membership and receive their 10% discount immediately.

“Sauce for the Goose not only makes it possible for Princeton residents to find hand-made arts and crafts objects; it also supports local artists by providing them a valuable outlet for their work,” says Maria Evans, Community Arts Manager, who also organizes the annual sale.

Sauce for the Goose was born sixteen years ago as an invitational sale lasting only a couple of days, featuring work by Arts Council ceramics students, and it expanded over the years. The Arts Council’s sale, which takes its name from an old nursery rhyme – “What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander” – provides important income for local artists during the holiday season, while it also raises funds to support the Arts Council’s excellent programs.
