Art Out Of the Closet, the annual fundraising event for the Spring Green Area Arts Coalition is scheduled for Sunday, January 29, 2017, at the Wisconsin Riverside Resort. The event will run from 1 to 4:30 pm.
The event will feature a silent auction of professional quality art -- paintings, sculptures, prints, photography, jewelry, pottery, textiles, lithographs and glass as well as the redemption of Creative Canvases certificates.
Creative Canvases, eight-inch by eight-inch squares of new original art created by area artists, will be also featured again at the fundraising event. To acquire a canvas, a $30 gift certificate can be purchased at Arcadia Books, the Spring Green General Store, Convivio, the Shoppe at Herbs, Spices & More, and at Nina’s Variety Store. Certificates are now available. Any certificates not sold in advance will be available for purchase at the event for $35 each. Holders of certificates redeem them for Creative Canvases during the January 29 event.
Creative Canvases for Young Artists will also be featured this year. 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.
Proceeds from the silent auction and the sale of Creative Canvas gift certificates support Spring Green Area Arts Coalition 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.
