10th Annual Guest Artist Event *** April 22, 2017
10th Annual Guest Artist Gala
Saturday, April 22, 2017
George B. Todd Performance Hall
The new teams are in place for this year’s events,
featuring Main Street Gallery Artists and
David Grafton of Grafton Gallery.
This traditional favorite will be an evening of art,
music and dancing, as well as silent and live auctions.
Serving as sponsor for the event is 1880 Bank.
Guest Artist is an opportunity to support Dorchester Center for the Arts (DCA)
and raise awareness of the arts.
The premise is that key leaders, who are not perceived as artists,
are selected to be “Guest Artists.”
Local professional artists are then paired with the Guest.
Art mediums vary; watercolor, oils, acrylics, pottery,
photography, jewelry and more.
Working together, and coached by the professional, the community leader
creates a work of art. The Professional Artists and Guest Artists are given several weeks to create the work.
The pieces are then auctioned off at the April 22 event.
Guest Team: Jack Saum, Anastasia Spear, Andrea Vernot, Marlene Lashuk, Robin Burton, Kathy Clark, & Jermaine Anderson.
Artist Team: Dave Grafton, Linda Starling, Leslie Giles, Theresa McFadden, Fran Saunders, Kathy Flament, & Deborah Haynes.
Guests will enjoy heavy hors d’ oeuvres, beer/wine cash bar, and
returning favorites Rich and the Roadrunners, featuring Daryl Davis, to heat up the dance floor.
Davis has an extensive music background and has delighted audiences for years. Rich and the Roadrunners
have received rave reviews from Baltimore, Washington, and Pennsylvania.
