This every other year event is a one of a kind! Every ticket is a winner! IF you have a ticket, when your name is called, you get to select from a room full of wonderful art donated by artists and friends of the Arts Commission. It is a hard task, so we throw a Preview Party on May 19th from 7:00 – 9:00 to give you time to plot your strategy. The Draw Party is on May 20th beginning at 6:30. There are also several pieces up for live auction, including a painting from Sheldon Tapley, framed by Maple Tree Gallery. A silent auction will include unique pieces. Follow us on Facebook for a glimpse of some of the items which could be yours! Tickets are $100 and are limited, reserve yours at firstname.lastname@example.org before they are gone. Below are pieces by Tillie Sowders, Pam Leinauer, and Mary Trollinger.

Our free summer art and book kit project began in the summer of 2020 when we couldn’t gather in groups. The fun has grown since then. In the summer of 2022, the Arts Commission delivered 50 kits twice to children in Boyle County. Inspired by a young Perryville Elementary School student who died in 2021, we created a kit to build a fairy garden which focused on her love of nature. We even wrote an original story about Amelia and her brother, John, as they made a garden for a special gift. Your donation to our program will support this project and other activities for young artists in our community.
Indiana artist, Julie McCullough, exhibits multi-faceted look at nature and American scenes at Schoolhouse Gallery in Constitution Square now through September 13th.
What a beautiful evening!
