Please join us for a fundraising exhibit and reception to be held at Studio K on Friday, April 24 at 6:00pm. Proceeds from the art sale and raffle will go toward painting a mural containing the poem Now Is Fireworks on the side wall of Studio K. The ASC/City of Charlotte public art initiative that the Elizabeth community was awarded includes a poem by Amy Bagwell.  Since the Arts and Science Council’s rules preclude use of any project funds for art on private property, the ECA Art Committee, Kate Vasseur and Amy Bagwell are collaborating on this fundraising event.  Refreshments will be provided courtesy of the ECA.  Artists whose work will be shown include: Nancy Albert, Amy Bagwell, Byron Baldwin, Graham Carew, Miriam Durkin, Stephanie Chesson, John Eft, Rebecca Jones, Matthew Myers, Terry Shipley, Kris Solow, Karen Thoune, Kate Vasseur, Christina Welsh and Amy Wycoff.

A fundraising raffle will be part of this event. Raffle items include: gift certificates from The Royal Gardens, Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find, Workman’s Friend Irish Pub and Sir Speedy Printers; a 1 Hour Onsite Landscape Consultation with Ric Solow of Solow Design Group, two 1/2 Hour Therapeutic Massages with Judy DiStefano of Therapeutic Solutions, an Individual Coaching Session via Telephone with Maureen Carlomagno of Your Wellness Coach and 4 tickets to any CPCC music, theater, or opera production between now and the end of 2015.

The ultimate raffle prize is an original 30” x 36” painting, Hawk In Flight by Graham Carew.  This is the image that will be used in the wall poem mural and its value is $1,200.

Raffle tickets are $1 each or $5 for six tickets. For advance ticket purchase please contact Nancy Albert: or Kris Solow:
