MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT


Thank you to all artists who donated to D'Art for Art this year....A bigger "Thank You" to those who gave more than one piece!
 
Recently, someone told me that they were hesitant to donate too much of their work because they felt that they were giving it away. I found this disturbing, and it took me a few minutes to figure out why and how to respond. Then I recalled that at the start of each season at the Kravitz Center, the General Manager comes onto the stage and tells the audience that the price of their ticket does not cover costs.  They depend on donors in order to serve the community.
 
To me, the Lighthouse Center serves our community extremely well.  I cannot be a large dollar donator, but I can give generously through my art.   D'Art is a fund raising event that helps pays the bills! Also, giving better pieces makes me proud to have my work shown in someone's home and this is GOOD ADVERTISING.
 
Yes, be selective in choosing where you donate.
The Lighthouse Art Center is MY number one choice.
 
The show this month at the Jupiter Community Center is another venue that gets a lot of local attention.  Everyone who attends classes or goes to community meetings walks by.  I attended a special showing that was part of a cocktail party given by the town the other night and the feedback was very good.  I hope that even more of you participate next year.
 
Paint something about FOOD and bring it to Kitchen Works, on Indiantown Road, on November 12th.
 
NCAA had a very good meeting last month.  Sibel Kocabasi did a video presentation of her body of work.  It was interesting watching her journey through years of artistic development and the changes that came about in her Art.


This month Ted Matz is going to discuss color and talk about his Plein-aire painting.  It should also be a fine evening.

MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT


D'Art this year is going to be bigger than ever!
This fantastic event has grown and is a major fundraising event for the Lighthouse Art Center.

Please be generous and bring an extra piece of your finest artwork to Monday's NCAA meeting.
Thank you all,
Gerri



 
Dear Artist,
As Palm Beach County’s oldest art center, the Lighthouse ArtCenter needs your help. One of our major fundraisers, D’Art for Art, is a cocktail and dinner party in which ticketed guests choose and take home a work of original art, such as paintings, drawings, sculpture and jewelry. Each year, our artist friends support the event by donating their art that they are proud to display in the museum and have placed in the hands of collectors.

We expect to sell out the event, and we need more art than ever before!
We would greatly appreciate it if you would donate a piece of your signed original art to the 7th Annual D’Art for Art fundraiser. Your artwork will be on exhibit in the museum. We are also listing all participating artists on our website, at the exhibit and in the printed event program.

We throw a great party for donating artists called the “Artists’ Appreciation & Collectors’ Party” on Saturday, November 2. This event is a big “thank you” for every donating artist and his or her guest. Delicious food is provided by “In the Kitchen,” there’s an open bar, and we also give awards to the winning artists that evening and send out a press release about the artists. (The Artists’ Appreciation & Collectors’ Party” is sponsored by Key Private Bank.)
Please drop off your artwork any day before October 24, 2013. (Our hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., or by appointment.) Two-dimensional work should be framed, edge-finished or gallery-wrapped, and wired ready to hang.

If you have any questions, please contact our curator Barbra Broidy at (561) 746-3101 or Barbra@lighthousearts.org.
On behalf of the Lighthouse ArtCenter and the “D’arting” art patrons, we thank you in advance for your support! We can’t do it without you!

Sincerely,





Katie Deits
