After a brief hiatus, the fabulous Ptarmigan Arts Scholarship Show and Auction returns to the Back Room Gallery in November. While there will be lots of beautiful pieces, this is much more than just an art show. Ptarmigan Arts has always provided a visual arts scholarship to a high school student (or students) in the Homer area.
We decided in 2012 to go big with the scholarship fundraising, and it has worked! In conjunction with the Homer Foundation, we have been able to award nearly $4,000 in scholarships in the last three years.
The Auction will feature art created by the gallery members and art donated by many other artists. Pieces by Barbara Lavalle, Rie Munoz, Karla Morriera, and Laurel Carnahan will be in the show. Our very own Ptarmigan Artists have donated photographs, paintings, cards, woodwork, fused glass, and other highly desirable artworks.
This is not only a wonderful opportunity to spend money on local artwork and feel like you made an exceptional buy, but also help local students pursue their artistic dreams.
The opening reception will be on First Friday, November 6 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Bidding sheets will be available to make a bid on your favorite pieces. And you will not want to miss the exciting closing and final bidding on Sunday, November 29 from 3:00-5:00 p.m.! See you there.
