Ready, Set, Gogh!
Tickets are on sale for the first annual Art Dash, Wednesday, April 6, 2022, at the Cork & Tap in Oregon who generously donated use of their space. There are two kinds of tickets: “Dasher” ($100) BUY NOW HERE and “Spectator”($50) BUY NOW HERE.
The event will benefit Serenity Hospice and Home, a nonprofit that provides the highest level of compassionate care as well as free, ongoing bereavement services that are open to the public. It will be a magical evening.
Fifty local artists from throughout the nine counties served by Serenity, have donated a piece of original art worth at least $100. Some artists have generously donated works of substantially greater value. After the “Art Preview” from 6:00pm – 7:00pm, the “Dash” will begin. Three “Dashers” will be called at a time at random to dash for the art of their choosing. What art the “Dashers” ultimately end up with depends on when their number is called and how well they “dash” to the piece they desire; every “Dasher” will go home with a one-of-a-kind piece of art to treasure.
Both Dashers and Spectators will have the opportunity to savor light bites, purchase beverages from the cash bar, listen to live music, view amazing art and mingle with many of the artists who will be in attendance! While “Spectators” do not get to dash, they will be able to enjoy watching and supporting a good cause. It will be an evening of fine art, food and fun. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Karen at 815-973-2050.
