In addition to our our fabulous Art Prizes, our local businesses always come through with wonderful Experience Prizes every year. If you’re a local area business and have something you would think would be an engaging prize, please Contact Us.

Artists letters have already gone out to our list, but if you are a local area or regional artist and would like to contribute an Art Prize to this years event, we’d LOVE to hear from you. So feel free to Contact Us and give us an idea of what you’d like to contribute. Please bear in mind that prizes are subject to committee review and not every contribution is used.

Hello everyone!

I’ve asked event co-Chair Bob Marggraff to write a more formal wrap-up for the event. But I’d like to say that the event looks like it was a great success. My wife and I had a lot of fun and she really adores the ceramic bowl she received in the Tombola, which was emcee’d with considerable energy and elan by Dr. Matt Hahn. Everyone looked wonderful and seemed to have a great time with the art, the food and the music.

I also want to say a very appreciative thank you for all the positive reviews and expressions of gratitude for the website and program and other graphic efforts. It was my pleasure to help lend my skills to our new home and it’s wonderful creative community.
