A neat way to support local arts and get a work by a local artist:
Luck of the Draw II returns Thursday, September 23, combining opportunity and art in a fun game of chance while raising funds to support VisArts. The event costs nothing to attend, but every ticket holder wins an unframed work on paper that has been donated by a local artist.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the “drawing” starts at 7:00 p.m. The “luck of the draw” determines the order in which each ticket holder ($100 per drawing) will have a turn to select his or her piece. Two-dimensional works span the gamut from drawings to photographs to collages, but you won’t know who did what, because each work will be signed only on the back.
Participating artists include Pam Anderson, Robert Meganck, Louis Poole, Diego Sanchez and Noah Scalin. Cash bars and festive music will enliven Luck of the Draw. The evening also includes a raffle for a $10 chance to win a this photograph by Ann Bradshaw, Wildly Unexpected.
