BARRE: Big Arty SPA Happening with Silent Auction and The Mellow Yellow Band. Yowsa!!

Friday, May 10, 7-9 pm at Studio Place Arts (SPA) in Barre

Big Arty SPA Happening
annual fundraiser for nonprofit art center SPA

The annual BASH (Big Arty SPA Happening) takes place on Friday, May 10, 7-9PM and your friends at Studio Place Arts hope to see you!  It’s a fun way to raise funds for SPA educational and exhibition programs.
SPA will have 3 art exhibits on view:  Two by Two (main floor gallery); Specimens by Jason Galligan-Baldwin (third floor gallery), and BabyProof by Jenna Kelly (third floor gallery).
On the second floor of the art center, there is a Silent Auction to benefit SPA with a variety of art, crafts, antiques, and gift certificates to local restaurants and organizations. Bidding starts now and concludes at the end of the BASH; 100% of bids support SPA programs.

Upstairs, guests will create a group mobile with founding artist Janet Van Fleet -- and raise funds for SPA programs.  Using metal stamping tools, participants will imprint with their name, initials or a short message onto tin disks that will hang from a large mobile displayed prominently at SPA following the BASH.  (This arty fundraiser costs $10 for 2 disks or $7 for a disk that flies solo.)

There will be light refreshments and award-winning wines served by the Grand View Winery (cash bar).  The BASH features a return performance by The Mellow Yellow Band (see link, below).  Some guests will dress for the event – if you’ve been looking for an event where you could wear your bell bottoms and fringed vest, this is it!

Call to SPA to reserve your tickets:  $15 Advance/$25 Day of Event
