In that case, all systems are go for Your Art’s Desire: A Celebration of Art, Wine & Chocolate, the annual Valentine-themed fundraiser for the Community Arts Project, this Saturday, Feb. 10, in Pacific City.
The gala celebration runs from 6:30 to 9:30 pm at the Kiawanda Community Center, with guests treated to complimentary wine, beer, sparkling cider, appetizers and desserts against a backdrop of live music. An art sale, silent auction, student art show and raffle will complete the evening festivities.
Guests will have the chance to browse a range of special, 12-inch-square panels created by local artists on the theme of “Landscapes of the Mind” — and available to take home for $125 apiece. All proceeds from the sale of the panels will support the Community Arts Project Art Literacy program. Artists will also sell studio art with generous donations from sale proceeds going toward the Community Arts Project.
The project provides art literacy programs to some 450 students each month at Nestucca Valley Elementary School in Cloverdale and Garibaldi Grade School, and also operates the Slug Soup children’s summer art program.
Tickets to the evening event are $30 advance and $35 at the door.
