It’s all about the artists
Last year, the Creative Center sold about $5,000 worth of art in two hours during this event. A total of 80-95% of the profits goes directly to the artists themselves. The remaining portion is used for art materials at the Center. The artists attend the event and would be happy to tell anyone about their work.
This is the largest art event hosted by the Creative Center. All art made by our artists within the previous year will be on display alongside art pulled from the archives, created by our famous artists from the past. Mediums are very diverse, including clay, fused glass, paint, colored pencil, fabric, and more. Every wall and shelf in the Creative Center’s Jon Ginsburg Gallery is packed with art – roughly 300-400 pieces. The event is always a full house, well attended by art enthusiasts and fans of the Creative Center. The price of the art varies from $5 to $150, with most pieces being in the “very affordable” range. Tax is already included in the price and we accept all forms of payment, including cash, check and debit or credit card at a $30 minimum purchases.
