Here is a sample of the art from both the silent and live auction this year: [cincopa A4GA5sLWBQku] The Mt. Gretna Arts Council will kick off summer in Mt.Gretna with our 24th Annual Summer Premiere. Supported by generously donated artwork and gift certificates, the Summer Premiere is the Arts Council’s only fund raiser. The money generated at the Premiere is used to produce Mt. Gretna’s community Calendar of Events. This money helps cash-strapped arts organizations in a variety of ways. This year, the Council donated $1,500 toward the new residential art program, Mount Gretna School of Art. Additionally, this money allows for the Council to award up to (4) $1,000 Art Scholarships to area high school seniors and/or college students. This year the Arts Council awarded two scholarships.
The Premiere offers a chance, after the long cold winter, for Mt. Gretnans to catch up with fellow neighbors and friends. The Premiere Live Auction begins with a Fred Swarr music-inspired painting. John Hess of Hess Auction Service, made our live auction both exciting and entertaining.
