"An Evening with Area Artists"
A fundraiser for artsBASICS
October 21, 2015
Are you a lover of the arts??? Even if you are not, you are invited to "AN EVENING WITH AREA ARTISTS!"
What is "An Evening with Area Artists?" It is your first hand look at how an artist creates a masterpiece from beginning to end. Ten local artists will allow you to observe them creating in their own interpretation and style, which is brought to life from a motivational display of a wide range of objects and models. These one-of-a-kind works of art will be completed and auctioned off at the end of the evening.
