About the Clothesline Show & Sale

Since the early 1960s, the Hudson Society of Artists has hosted the annual Clothesline Art Show, proceeds from which have been directed toward many different charitable endeavors.  We are proud supporters of The Hudson Community Foundation and the annual Independence Day Celebration, and The Case Barlow Farm. Hudson Society of Artists also supports fellow artists such as the locally founded National Collage Society, the Cliffside Collaborative Artists, and the Ohio  Watercolor Society.   

We award the Lowell E. Smith/Margaret Roby Memorial Scholarship annually to a Hudson High  School student who is pursuing the study of art in college.
