Patron Show at CalvART in Memory of Pat Carpenter

October 10, 2012

Don’t miss out on the best art fundraiser in Calvert County! The CalvART Gallery will host the “Patrons Show” on Saturday, October 20th, 2012 from 5pm to 8pm. The show will be held in memory of the gallery’s greatest patron and supporter of the Arts in Calvert County, Pat Carpenter. Pat was the executive director of the Arts Council of Calvert County. The CalvART Gallery is a program of the Arts Council and Pat’s presence is missed at the gallery every day.

The “Patrons Show” will be an exciting, fun event that is entertaining, and provides seasoned and new art collectors with the great opportunity to acquire high quality, original fine art at a great price while supporting a non-profit organization and community of artists. This event will feature 10-15 works of original fine art or fine art services (such as a two day glass fusing workshop with lunch) donated by past and present CalvART Gallery members. Patron tickets are $300 each. For each ticket drawn, ticket-holders go home with a work of art valued anywhere from $300 and upwards. The first ticket drawn on the night of the event gets first choice of the artwork.There will be a ‘Lucky Last Draw” Prize (for the last person to pick a piece of artwork)

Patron Tickets ($300 each) will go on sale at the gallery on Thursday, October 4th. Only 10 to 15 tickets will be sold. Artwork and art services in the show will be on display in the gallery starting Oct. 4, 2012. If you’d like to join in the excitement on the night of the drawing but not participate in the Patrons’ drawing, $10 tickets will be available at the door or in advance. A fabulous door prize will be awarded to one of the $10 ticket holders. The gallery artists (past & present) who have donated works (to date) are: Ann Crain, Abbey Griffin, Colleen Sabo, Megan Richard, Suzanne Shelden, Mary Blumberg, Ray & Phyllis Noble, Ray Bogle, Denise Breitburg, Sylvia Hill, Mimi Little, Beverly Jackson, Ellen Robinson and Beverly Jackson
