The Emerson’s annual Celebration of the Arts event is our biggest fundraiser of the year. This event celebrates arts and culture with an evening full of quick-draw artists, live and silent auctions, fine dining, drinks, dancing and merriment! We are soliciting original art donations for this year’s auctions and excited to acknowledge the artists who support the Emerson by having a special exhibition in the Jessie Wilber Gallery prior to the event. This will give the community a preview of the work available for live and silent auction and give much deserved recognition to the artists. The exhibit will be comprised of selected works from submissions received, and the chosen artists will be celebrated during an opening reception held during the December 13 Art Walk. The exhibit will run from December 13, 2019 – January 24, 2020. All proceeds from the live and silent auctions go toward the Emerson’s art education, exhibits and restoration projects.
