2009 Benefit: another successful year!

Many heartfelt thanks to everyone who donated artwork, crafts, gift certificates and merchandise, to everyone who attended, helped, promoted, donated and supported the Granada Arts 2009 Benefit! We are happy to report that it was a huge success! We already sold five pieces of art on the walls, as well as MANY pieces on our art table and the raffle and silent auction yielded happy winners.

In addition to the artists mentioned in the previous post, we'd like to thank Terry Rorison, who recently returned to wheelthrowing, for donating 2 beautiful stoneware planters, complete with basil plants, which were quickly sold AND to Michael Antkowski, who donated several beautiful framed photographs for our show.

Of course, we'd like to applaud our music performers Black and Berg and Machete, who gave outstanding performances throughout the entire night.

And finally, we are very grateful that Your Inner Vagabond has allowed us to use their beautiful space for our benefit.

Thank you to everyone!

Además de los artistas ya mencionados, queremos agradecer a Terry Rorison, que reinició su trabajo con cerámica y donó 2 bellas vasijas, llenadas con plantas de albahaca. También, gracias a Michael Antkowski por donar varias fotos.
