Admission is free and all artworks will be available to purchase for $50.
The GALLERY RALLY is a live drawing party and fundraiser where artists work side-by-side, and the work goes on sale as they are completed. Visitors have the opportunity to watch the creative process, as sketches become completed works of art throughout an hour. Over 40 invited artists will work in 1-hour shifts with two shifts. All types of artists, such as Clay Witt, Eileen French, Aaron Eichorst, Ryan Trott, Michael Fitts, Stacey Evans, and many more will be represented and making work. As the artists complete their work, they are immediately available for only $50 each!
The event is family friendly. Little artists will love to watch the variety of work being made. There is also a kid’s table where young artists can create their own GALLERY RALLY piece. Those works can be sold for $5 to benefit the gallery (if the artist is willing to share).
The GALLERY RALLY will take place in the exhibition space at Second Street Gallery in the Live Arts building. Refreshments will be available for purchase such Devil’s Backbone beer, In Vino Veritas Fine Wine, Potter’s Craft Cider and non-alcoholic drinks. Pachamama food truck will be parked on Water Street for an easy snack or supper.
