Art Out of the Closet Donations

The Spring Green Area Arts Coalition will host its annual Art Out Of the Closet on Sunday, January 28th, at the Wisconsin Riverside Resort in Spring Green.

Donations are currently being sought through January 21st. Professional quality art in good condition--paintings, sculptures, prints, photography, jewelry, pottery, textiles, lithographs and glass are now being accepted at the Spring Green General Store. Forms at the site will ask donors to describe the items for auction and suggest a fair market value. There is a tax benefit for the year of donation.

The event also includes Creative Canvases. The canvases are eight-inch by eight-inch squares of original art created by area artists and then featured at the January Art Out of the Closet fundraiser. To acquire a canvas, a $30 gift certificate can be purchased at Arcadia Books, the Spring Green General Store, Convivio, the Shoppe at Herbs, Spices & More, and at Nina’s Variety Store. Any certificates not sold in advance will be available for purchase at the event for $35 each. Holders of certificates may redeem them for Creative Canvases of their choice during the event.

Proceeds from Art Out of the Closet supports Spring Green Area Arts Coalition sponsorship of art and cultural programs that benefit communities in the River Valley. Monies raised help to meet match requirements of an annual grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board.
