LA GRANDE, Ore. – The La Grande Arts Commission will host the 25th Annual Season’s Faire Saturday, Nov. 5 in Loso Hall at Eastern Oregon University.
More than 40 artists will be exhibiting their work in the Nightingale Gallery and competing for $1,000 in prize money, donated by a number of local businesses. Amy Poor, a nationally recognized wildlife artist and 1994 graduate of EOU, will serve as juror this year and select the award winners. All art will be available for purchase the evening of the event.
Each participating artist donated a piece of their work which will be auctioned to the public beginning at 7:30 p.m. The auction pieces may be previewed from 6:30 to 7:30 in the Loso Hall lobby outside of the gallery. The exhibit will continue through Nov. 18.
The event will also honor the first Arts Commission as well as two individuals, Carolyn Gilbert, wife of former EOU President David Gilbert, and Vickie Herman.
Hors d’oeuvres and desserts created by local culinary experts will be served throughout the evening. There will be a no-host wine bar as well as coffee and punch available.
Funds raised from this event benefit the annual “Arts for All” festival, a day of hands-on art experiences for children offered at no cost to the participants. Children can experiment with painting, printmaking, pottery, music, weaving, theater and many other types of art. Held the third weekend in April, Friday is reserved for children with special needs while Saturday is open to everyone. It is estimated that as many as 500 children participate each year.
Tickets are $12.50 if purchased in advance or $15 at the door. Advance tickets are available at Sunflower Books, the Mitre’s Touch Art Gallery and the EOU Bookstore or by calling Minnie Tucker at 541-962-1352, ext. 201.
