For This Year's Holiday Show/Silent Auction
PAC is giving back! For this year’s winter auction we’ve also decided, as a thank you to our members, to forego taking a gallery commission.
All art sales go 100% to the artist!

Please join us for the silent auction opening on Thursday, November 7th, 2019 from 5:30-7:30. Bids will be accepted from 5:30-7 pm and you may take purchased artwork with you right off the walls the night of the opening! LIve music and refreshments will be provided. Open to public. Cash, credit, and checks will be accepted. The show runs through Thursday, December 26, 2019.

This is not a formal teaching workshop but, rather, a chance to explore working with paper and other materials to create a new work of art. Materials will be provided but you are welcome to bring in things they'd like to work with. If you have tools you prefer to use (such as Exacto knives, cutting boards, scissors, glue, etc), do bring them with you.
The workshop is free and open to members and non-members, but a $5 donation towards materials would be greatly appreciated.
