The Arts Council of Lake Oswego's upcoming fundraiser invites people to explore unique furniture pieces made by multiple artists.
"The online auction and in-person event brings together five artists, all of whom work in varied media from colored pencil and paint to photocopy transfers, duct tape, and Tazhib," read the ACLO press release. "Their creative interpretations have produced one-of-a-kind furniture pieces."
The five pieces of furniture were created by artists Marjan Anvari, Dave Arpin, Tanmaya Bingham, Sara Siestreem and Lisa Wiser.
The exclusive in-person event will be from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28 at the ARTspace Gallery at 380 A Avenue, Suite A. Tickets will be $50 per person and will include food from Nicoletta's Table and Market Place, wine from Campbell Lane Winery, a viewing of the current gallery exhibition, "Abandoned: Images of What Remains" and a chance to meet the artists.
People will have the opportunity to bid online for the artwork from noon Oct. 22 until noon Oct. 29. To secure one of the limited tickets, visit the ACLO's website.
A raffle component will also be part of the fundraiser. Raffle tickets will be $25 for a chance to win 50% of the funds raised. The raffle will open Oct. 22 and end Oct. 28. The winner will be announced at the event around 7:45 p.m. on Oct. 28, though people don't need to be present to receive the prize.
There are 200 tickets available and purchasers have to be 18 or older and in Oregon when the tickets are purchased.
The Art of Living fundraiser will bring in funds to help support ACLO programs and conservation of the rotating outdoor Gallery Without Walls artwork.
