STURGEON BAY, WI (September 8, 2016) – The Women’s Fund of Door County (WFDC) invites you to the second annual Artrageous Benefit featuring 70+ recognized Door County women artists on Saturday, September 24 at the Rehberger’s Hidden Acres Farm, 1128 Beach Road in Sister Bay.
“Fostering her appreciation for the arts” and “Recognizing and honoring HER” are priorities for the WFDC, resulting in this one-day opportunity to purchase 2 and 3-dimensional art at the ARTrageous price of $99. Imagine 70+ female artists joining together to support the arts AND benefit other women at the same time. A preview of the Art begins at 2:00pm with greetings and sale beginning at 3:30pm at the quaint working farm of the historic property.
The drawing for an 18” x 24” pastel, “Wetland Reflections”, by award-winning artist Mac Schueppert, will be at 4:00pm. Raffle tickets are available at 3/$20 and 6/$30. Mac Schueppert, a signature member of the Pastel Society of America, is a renowned plein air and soft pastel artist admired for her fresh, vibrant paintings. Your presence is requested for the drawing.
Enjoy the music of Jeanne Kuhns and Marybeth Mattson throughout the autumn afternoon while meandering the grounds of the beautiful Hidden Acres Farm and enjoying the art of scores of recognized Door County artists. Admission is $5.00 at the door and refreshments will be available throughout the afternoon. Cash or checks only will be accepted.
This benefit will support the Women’s Fund of Door County Sustainability Grants and the Community Collaborative Grant to be awarded in 2017. Both support programs and services for women and girls in Door County.
