OUR Town Art Show & Sale

Forty, early-arriving benefactors ($200, $300, $750, $1,250) were joined by 345 friends ($75) for the Opening Night Party that kicked off the 30th Anniversary of the OUR TOWN Art Show & Sale chaired by Liz DuMouchelle and Janice Degen at The Community House. They were greeted at the entrance by honorary chairs Julie Dawson and Sally Gerak, who have a long history with the event. The show of 361 pieces of art that had been selected by artist Robert Dempster and DIA conservator Barbara Heller was accented for the party by models wearing fantastic fashions created of paper and plastic bags by designer Matthew Richmond, committee member Dana Sorensen’s idea (see photo gallery). In addition to dining on the stroll and viewing and buying art, lots of socializing ensues at this annual event. People also applaud the winners of cash prizes determined by the jurors.
