Yes, our charity event is this Saturday! For those that don't know Who ARTED? is our way of accomplishing a few things:First, it's a way for us to get those that may not feel artsy to get creative and art for a good cause.
Second, we take vinyl records that will probably find their way into a landfill and give them a new lease on life.
Third, by keeping the prices at a minimum it's possible to get original art into the hands of art lovers that don't necessarily have a ton of cash to shell out for art.
And lastly, we are raising money for a worthy cause and having a blast doin' it!
The charity this year is the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the money raised will be donated in memory of Heather's mother Connie Perry.
The event will take place at Art on the Levee which is located at Newport on the Levee in Newport KY 6 until 10 pm. Stonebrook Winery will be offering wine tastings for a small fee. Other refreshments will be available free of charge.
We have some great artists lined up this year. Some of the talented folks that have donated their time and creative juices this year include:
Daniel Emery Taylor
Black-N-Bluegrass Roller Girls
...and tons more! Will give a full list of contributing artists with links as well as photos next week.
