Peebles Art & Wine Event
The totally organized brainchild of LAC member Kathy Ross, the ‘Art on Loan’ event was a first for LAC.
Joining forces with Rick Peebles, owner of Peebles Prosthetics, a dental prosthetics lab, the LAC solved the problem of his building’s bare walls by displaying a variety of member artwork! As a result, Rick got a more attractive facility for employees and clients, and the LAC got wonderful exposure of our abilities and offerings as a non-profit organization.
While beginning with the idea of furthering exposure of the many talented LAC artists, the show wrapped up with a tremendous reception on December 10th.
Rick’s employees, led by Cindy Kelly, Sales and Marketing Director, were also on hand to organize and serve.
Attended by many artists and Peebles’ clients and friends, Kathy organized a fun evening, including a scavenger hunt, raffle drawings, silent auction, musical entertainment,and the opportunity to get a jump on holiday shopping by buying from the artists’ sales tables.
Throughout the evening, the reception crowd flowed around the entire second floor of the building, weaving down the hallways where the art on loan was hung several months ago and into the large training room for announcements of prizes. The corner break room held a large selection of wonderful food!
And the decision was made among everyone involved that such success deserves a repeat! Look for another opportunity for this event later in 2016!
