Penick Village Hosts Art Show and Sale
Penick Village will host its Second Annual Art Show and Sale on campus in the North Building, Sunday, Feb. 25, from 1:30 to 5 p.m.
The preceding evening, Saturday, Feb. 24, there will be a preview party in the same location from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. The preview party showcases a silent auction with many exciting and creative prizes, hors d'oeuvres and wine, music by Albert Everett, and an opportunity to be the first to buy the artwork. Admission charge for the preview party is $35 per person.
The work of celebrated artists, such as Cele Bryant, David Hewson and Jessie Mackay, among many other well-known area artists will be part of the show.
Ben Owen and Phil Morgan have included some of their renowned pottery pieces. Also featured will be work from the talented Penick Village resident artists and will include a solid cherry Celtic cross woodcarving and photographs along with many oils, watercolors and acrylics of importance.
The art works will be displayed in the lounge and in the breezeway of North Building on six-foot tables brought in especially for the show, and on easels and flats. To make the afternoon of the show festive, tea will be served from 1:30 to 4 p.m., followed by wine and hors d'oeuvres from 4 to 5 pm. Talented Sandhills pianists will provide background music throughout the afternoon.
The show is designed to develop into a signature event for Penick Village and become an important exhibition opportunity for area artists. Proceeds from this year's show will go to the Penick Village Benevolent Assistance Fund, which follows the founding edict of Bishop Edwin Penick that "no one will be turned out for lack of funds."
There is no admission charge for the Sunday show. All artwork is for sale. For further information, contact Mimi Beatty in the Development Department at Penick Village at 692-0381.
