The 5 x 5 Exhibit & Fundraiser took place in August and was hugely successful. JCPA committee members Sarah Nobles, Chasidy Hathorn, and Elvis Kee headed up the planning committee for the event and pulled everything together within a couple of months. Artists generously donated over 120 artworks for the benefit, and nearly all of the artworks sold! Many lined up outside the Tipton Gallery well before doors opened to be one of the first to view and choose art pieces for purchase.
Artworks included various techniques and styles, with media ranging from watercolors and acrylic to mixed media and photography, among others. All art pieces were 5″ x 5″ and were sold for $25.
Over 100 pieces sold within the first hour! All art remained on the wall for exhibition for an hour and a half, and attendees mingled with one another while enjoying the art on display. There was something to appeal to everyone, and there was excitement in the air as the art pieces were selected.
All proceeds from the event have been distributed to the Boys and Girls Club of Johnson City and JCPA. JCPA plans to hold the 5 x 5 Exhibit & Fundraiser annually, so if you weren’t able to make it out this time, make sure to stop by next year!
