"Outside the Box" 2010 --
There are a couple of things that really stand out from this year's "Outside The Box" event and I wanted to take some time to acknowledge them.
First off, according to our preliminary calculations we have FAR exceeded previous years in terms of the total dollars we raised through this event. On Sunday we added up all the top bids and came up with a total of about $1,250 gross! We think previous years netted no more then $800. Of course we still have some expenses to deduct but it looks like 2010 will be a banner year for our "Outside the Box" event.
I do want to thank all the AiA members that contributed their time and talent to make this year's event a smashing success.
I want to take a moment to also thank one contributing artist in particular, Layne Young. Layne is NOT a member of AiA but when I told her about AiA's "Outside the Box" event she immediately wanted to donate one of her pieces to the event. Layne is one of the Studio Artists at Project Space 2010 and I would invite all of you to stop by Project Space 2010 to check out Layne's art in the Studio Artist Gallery.
Once again, Thank you one and all for making this year's Outside the Box event the event to remember...
