Thank you so much to everyone who came out and celebrated Paint Love with us at Refuge Coffee Co. on July 20, 2017! A special thank you to the amazing musical duo, Jared&Amber who created a magical atmosphere with their performances all night (scroll down for video) and Ellen Gadberry who led an awesome hands-on art activity! (A recent paper making project she taught within one of our programs!) Together they helped us celebrate our community.
We announced some exciting news during the event. First, our fundraising campaign has brought in over $19,000 in four weeks with nearly 100 donors! There is still time to donate here! We also announced that Paint Love will be presenting at the Good Gracious Variety Show on Saturday, August 26th at Switchyards Downtown. You can learn more here.
In addition to our partnership with the Good Gracious Show, Monday Night Brewing has generously offered to host Paint Love's Art Auction for free on Thursday, October 19th as part of their $100K in 100 days promotion! (So make sure to SAVE THE DATE!)
Finally, we announced some HUGE news!! Paint Love has been selected by the Georgia Council for the Arts through the appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly for a $10,000 Partner Grant. (GCA is a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.)
