Light refreshments and friendly competition are on the menu for Thursday’s opening reception for April’s exhibits, “Earth,” “April All-Media Exhibit,” and “Somewhere in the Orient II.” (More photos are in this blog post.)
The opening reception and meet the artist will take place from 6:30 to 8:00 pm in The Art League Gallery. Things will kick off with a recycled art activity as part of the inaugural League of 25, a fundraising group that funded the “Earth” exhibit.
Donors will be split into teams to create collaborative sculptures from found materials, which they’ll build relay-style after a short planning session. Their challenge: in a few minutes, create a work of art from the beads, tires, CDs, ice cube trays, glue guns, wires, duct tape, and assorted other materials available to them.
Torpedo Factory artist Lisa Schumaier will choose the winners, who will each receive an original woodcut print by Nancy Reinke. There will also be a drawing for donors from prizes including: a stay at Hotel Monaco on King Street, a four-course tasting for two at the Grille at Morrison House, and a gift certificate to Jackson 20.
We hope to see you at what promises to be an eventful opening reception! You can find out more about the League of 25 on this page.
