The Gift of Art

‘The Gift of Art’ Opens at Josephy Center for Art and Culture

The Gift of Art, an open, multi-media exhibit of artwork offers art for sale starting at $50, opens Thursday, December 2014 at the Josephy Center for Arts and Culture. The opening reception begins at 7:00. Doors open at 6:30.  This special evening will include a special silent auction to raise funds for the Josephy Center’s Kids Art Program.  The silent auction begins at 7 p.m. and ends at 8:30 p.m.  All art will start with a minimum bid of $50 and can be taken home at the time of purchase.  The event offers light refreshments and a no-host bar.

This exhibit is the first of the Josephy Center’s new holiday annual event that includes local artists work on display and for sale at affordable prices to encourage the community to invest in local art, gift art to friends and family or add to your collection.

“In Wallowa County, there’s an abundance of diverse talent, this exhibit celebrates those artists and allows the community to engage in collecting art at affordable prices while fundraising for an excellent cause,” said Executive Director Cheryl Coughlan.

All remaining arts and crafts will be on sale throughout the month of December, along with other arts and crafts.

Artists to look for include Konky Forster, Tyler Hays, Nancy Clarke, Debbie Lind,  Viki Abram, Joan Madsen, Whitney Freya, Jan Hohmann, Jennifer Klimza, Janie Tippett, and more.
