NO TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE!
Planning is underway for the 2022 Driftless Area Art Festival, September 17 and 18 in Soldiers Grove. And in anticipation, the Festival committee is bringing back an old favorite, the pre-festival Spring Gala. Set for Thursday, June 2, it will be held at the Gays Mills Community Commerce Center starting at 5:30 p.m.
Co-chairs for the event, Sharon Lind and Clinton Hardesty, promise good fun, great music by The Guthries and culinary treats from The Rooted Spoon by Dani Lind. Features for the evening include a silent auction more than 65 pieces by professional artists, a live auction of special events, a raffle, and the live auction of blue-ribbon works by KidsArt winners in the 2019 Art Festival.
Proceeds from the KidsArt auction will go to the art programs in the winning students’ schools. The yearly auction, begun in 2010, has raised over $15,000 for school art programs. “We want to do all that we can to support and encourage art in the schools,” said Jane Holzhauer, co-chair of the KidsArt program, a regular favorite for Festival goers. This year’s Youth Art tent will host both the KidsArt and the Teen Art exhibits, featuring works by schools throughout the Driftless region, and a creative zone for painting, sculpture, and face painting.
