1125 3rd St. SE – Across from NewBo Market!
Join us at Parlor City Pub & Eatery for the fifth annual Arts & Crafts event. This fundraiser combines a live art auction and craft beer tasting with proceeds benefiting the Eastern Iowa Arts Academy, a nonprofit organization offering classes in art, music, dance, drama, creative writing and cultural arts at no cost to K-12 youth in our community.
This fun event is open to anyone – art lovers, beer lovers or anyone looking to support a great cause. Tickets are $40 and include beer and food from Parlor City and admission to the auction.
Professional painter or just dabble with doodles? We want you!
Canvases are now on sale for the Arts and Crafts fundraiser. If you are interested in purchasing a canvas and donating your painting back to the auction, buy your canvas here.
Completed canvases are due back to AAF:CR-IC by June 23.
Artists that donate their work will receive 50% off the price of admission to the live auction.
All artwork will be displayed at Parlor City Pub & Eatery from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Each piece will get a number. Attendees will each receive a card with a name, description, and photo of each piece so they can note which pieces they are interested in as they view the art.
- • The auction begins at 6:30 p.m.
- • Art must be paid for in full the night of the auction and can be taken home that night.
- • Attendees wishing to get a bid number must present a credit card at the start of the event.
- • All bids are considered binding and all sales are final.
To get you in the mood, here are a few samples of past paintings that were included in the auction. (click on previews to view the works)
