The Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts will host Gogh Green, an upscale art resale event on Monday, October 5, from 7-9 p.m., at 527 N. Patterson St. Here’s an event that even Vincent Van Gogh would feel good about, as all proceeds will benefit the art education programs at the Turner Center.
Gogh Green’s opening night reception allows patrons a “first look” at the art works for sale. Tickets for the Monday night event cost $20 and include refreshments and beverages. A drawing will be held to win a commissioned portrait of your pet by artist Jill Bright. Tickets for the drawing are 1 for $5 or 3 for $10. You do not have to be present to win.
Gogh Green, organized by the Center for the Arts Guild, is designed to help art lovers recycle art that they no longer want, while helping make available upscale works of art at affordable prices. The event includes exceptional art works, such as an original painting by Irene Dodd.
People interested in recycling any of their current art collections to make room for some new pieces, may donate their paintings, ceramics, sculptures, jewelry and other hand-crafted art works for Gogh Green by September 25.
The sale will continue Tuesday and Wednesday, October 6 and 7 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., free of charge.
