Morgan County Local and Regional Artists
It’s that time of year again-Art and Elegance is ramping up and we are reaching our to our local and regional Artists! This year Is somewhat special – It Is the 40th (Ruby) Anniversary of the Morgan Arts Council.
Last year’s Art and Elegance, Casino Royale, transformed the Country Inn Into a gambling paradise of games, jazz and funny money! But what made the evening truly successful was awarding your amazing donated creations to the patrons. Your donations helped to raise more than $26,000 to support MAC/The Ice House programs In the community. We couldn’t have done It without you!
Your generosity over the years has expanded the ice House and MAC’s ability to get art out there.
- ART Integration and Visiting Artist Programs In all Morgan Co. Schools
- Saturday Morning Children’s art classes at no charge in our wet classroom
- MAC Create classes almost every month
- Digital Media Center classes and community broadcasts
- Dance Studio and Theater offerings round out MAC’s programs
The Jewel Ball at the Country Inn on November 11, 2017 will celebrate MAC at 40 with a fun walk down memory lane for the fundraising event. Memorabilia of MAC through the years will decorate the space and generate good memories and fun conversation. We will feature your art, with musical entertainment by Larry and Pat Springer, dancing to the Flashbacks, and a buffet dinner to round out a full evening of fun.
For your donation you will receive credit in our event program and an invitation to attend and enjoy MAC’s special Artist Thank You Party with food and wine on December 1 at the the Ice House Gallery where you will meet some primary supporters of the arts In the Eastern Panhandle.
Please download and complete the Donation Form and bring your artwork by Oct. 1, 2017 to the Ice House Co-Op from Thursday through Sunday 11-5 pm or call to make other arrangements. Include any marketing material you like to advertise your art.
