I teach at a private high school in Louisville, Kentucky. Ten years ago, we developed a terrific idea to raise money for the school’s scholarship fund (we help about 40% of our students annually, which is quite high for independent schools.) So, this post is a plug for the 10th reiteration of that idea.
Press release begins ———————————————
Each year the Imagine art auction raises critical dollars to support student scholarships for young adults who would otherwise not be able to attend St. Francis High School. Imagine also provides the community with a wonderful opportunity to buy high quality artwork produced by some of the most talented artists in the region.
Imagine 2006 marks the 10th anniversary of the event, and we have procured some exciting pieces from both returning artists such as RedXing Ye (叶红杏), Chuck Swanson, Rodney Hatfield (Art Snake), Stephen Powell, whose piece, “Startled Lemon Jealousy,” is pictured at right, and Dale Chihuly and some new resources, including an acrylic and oil by Dionisio Ceballos, an Ansel Adams photograph and several contemporary items representing a variety of mediums from a prominent Chicago gallery.
A selection of the items being auctioned is featured in The Wyvern Gallery.
If you have not made your reservations yet, please contact Lucy Marret as soon as possible at 502-736-1000. Individual Tickets are $100 and tables are $1,000.
