20 Dec Arts Gala : Impact
The Friends of the Plainfield–Guilford Township Public Library invites you to attend the 2018 Arts Gala: Impact.
Now in its sixth successful year, this art sale and fundraiser is one of the largest indoor fine art events in Hendricks County. This event offers art items in a variety of styles and media for sale to the public. Arts Gala will take place April 27, 28 and 29 at the Library.
The purpose of the Arts Gala is to raise funds for special Library projects and engagement that will benefit the community. In previous years funds went towards updating the Children’s Room and sponsoring mental health events and awareness.
Over the last five years the Arts Gala fundraiser has:
- Sold over $64,000 in local artwork
- Raised over $24,000 for library projects
- Partnered with over 50 community sponsors
- Publicized in over 30 publications
- Partnered with over 150 local artists
- Drawn over 3,000 attendees
The Arts Gala opens with the Starlight Reception for Patrons of the Arts on Friday, April 27 from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. This spectacular event allows Patrons of the Arts to meet the artists and gives them the first opportunity to view and make their purchases from the displayed art. Attendees will enjoy live music, hors d’oeuvres from local eateries, wine, and craft beers with a pledge to spend $50 or more at the show.
The event opens to the public Saturday, April 28, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday, April 29, 1 – 5 p.m., with various artist demonstrations throughout the day.
