ART OUT OF THE CLOSET:  SILENT AUCTION AND CREATIVE CANVAS LOTTERY

Spring Green Area Arts Coalition will once again hold it annual fundraiser, “Art Out of the Closet” on January 28.  Creative Canvases, eight-inch by eight-inch squares of original art created by area artists, have been a popular part of the event in recent years and will be also featured again.  To acquire one of these canvases created by local artists,  $30 certificates may now be purchased at Arcadia Books, the Spring Green General Store, Nina’s Variety Store and Convivio. Any certificates not sold in advance will be available for purchase at the event for $35 each. Holders of certificates may redeem them for Creative Canvases during the January 28 event.

Creative Canvases for Young Artists will also be included in the January 28 event. This feature will include an exhibition of sponsored 6-inch by 6-inch artwork produced by budding artists in the community below high school age. Canvases can be sponsored at a cost of $15. Sponsors may claim the square created by their sponsored artist after canvases are displayed at Art Out of the Closet.

Wisconsin Artists Gallery, 143 S. Washington Street, Spring Green, will host young artists in its studio space on Sunday, January 7 and Sunday, January 21 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Upon presentation of the $15 sponsorship registration, participating young artists will be supplied with a blank canvas and be given access to in-studio art supplies, and they will be able to begin work on their projects.

Alternative arrangements can be made to pick up the young artist canvases and pay for sponsorships by contacting Jen Jensen by phone at 608-459-0243 or by email: jennjen6@gmail.com.

The event schedule will be as follows: Doors will open at 1:30 pm; the drawing for selections of Creative Canvases will begin at 3 pm; bidding on the Silent Auction will close at 4 pm.

Proceeds from the January 28 event support the Spring Green Area Arts Coalition’s sponsorship of art and cultural programs that benefit communities in the River Valley.  Monies raised help to meet match requirements of an annual grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board.
