This exhibition is open to the public on Tuesday, May 7th and runs through June 13th. People’s Choice Selections will be announced as the winners are celebrated during the 37th Whiskey Painters of America Exhibition reception on May 24th from 5:00 – 8:00 PM. Patrons will have the opportunity to mingle with the artists, watch live art demonstrations, enjoy refreshments and hors d’oeuvres and purchase art during this free reception.
For this year’s exhibition, members of the WPA have elected to donate Whiskey Paintings to be raffled off at their reception to be held on May 24th from 5:00 – 8:00 PM in the gallery at the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center (CVAC). The proceeds from these raffled items will be used to support the art departments of our local elementary schools. These schools are doing their best to function with a yearly budget equal to less than the price of two Whiskey Paintings! Thus, every dollar goes a long way in support of the arts for these youths. Donations towards this cause will be accepted at the reception as well. Raffle tickets can be purchased now at CVAC or over the phone at (330)928-8092, 1 ticket for $10 and 3 tickets for $20. Buy-it-now prices are also available for these donated items.
Whiskey Paintings, the perfect décor for your home or office, generally sell for a minimum of $75 to as high as $1500, with the average selling price between $150 and $300. Thus, by purchasing a raffle ticket you have the potential to win a Whiskey Painting for as low as $10, while donating to a worthy cause.
To donate towards our local elementary art departments and potentially take home a Whiskey Painting purchase your raffle ticket today! Winner will be selected at the 37th Annual National Whiskey Painters of America Exhibition at Art Sale reception on May 24th at CVAC.
