Art Classic to showcase high caliber local artwork
In the past week, the Santa Clarita Artists’ Association was kept busy as more than 50 artists submitted their best works of art for exhibit in the 18th Annual Art Classic, which will be held at the Art Gallery of the College of the Canyons.
The show will be open to the public for free viewing starting this Saturday, October 6th and will culminate with the Association’s gala fundraiser on October 13th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. This fundraiser aims to bring together fine art, musical entertainment, hors d’oeuvres, decadent desserts, and fabulous wine in grand style. A live and silent art auction of over 50 art works will allow every art lover the opportunity to own an original piece of art.
Mayor Pro Tem, Bob Kellar will be on hand to present awards to the artists and Don Fleming of Valencia Acura will act as auctioneer and keep the evening moving in his usual style.
Based on the works submitted, this promises to be the premier community art show with something that’s sure to delight every type of art lover. Of note are a 6 foot metal dragon sculpture, a flying fairy, over-sized abstracts perfect for large spaces and corporate offices, colorfully rendered landscapes, florals, and still lifes, contemporary collages, realistically drawn graphic pieces, flowing watercolors, and artful photographs.
Tickets to the Art Classic are priced at $25. Black tie optional. For more information or to purchase tickets please visit www.santaclaritaartists.org or call (661) 618.-0939.
