Party with PRC on March 23!

Posted by: Mary Kate Ranii on February 14, 2018

Art for a Cause
A benefit for PRC and Rise Against Hunger
Friday, March 23
12:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Come be surrounded by color!  Dozens of original paintings have been donated by over 50 generous local artists. Why? They believe in helping feed hungry school children –  and supporting the environment!

50% of this art sale will go to the Pennsylvania Resources Council, which supports environmental education programs and events.  And 50% of this art sale will go to Newtown Square Presbyterian Church’s Rise Against Hunger event.  Over 20,500 meals will be packed for hungry school children in March.

These contributions are priced lower than their appraised value – tremendous deals!

Whether you prefer an acrylic still life, a watercolor landscape, or an abstract in oil, you will find a well-priced piece for your home or office.  The early bird gets the worm, so come to the Pennsylvania Resource Council at noon for the best selection!  Here are just a few pieces that will be available:

Over 50 generous, gifted artists have stepped forward to donate an amazing selection of original paintings.  Many of them are members of local artist groups, like the Delaware Valley Art League, the Wayne Art Center, the Artist’s Circle, ARTsisters, and Flying Colors.

These artists personify charity in action.  Their contributions are for sale at 4 locations:

Sales began in December and will run through to May 5, 2018.
