You are invited to a fun night out to benefit local organizations!


It is time for the 5th Painting Fundraiser hosted by the Harrison Ranch Arts Guild:

An Evening of Wine, Cheese and Painting!

On Friday, March 27th from 6:30 to 9:30 PM the Harrison Ranch Arts Guild is hosting its’ 5th Painting Fundraiser Night at 5755 Harrison Ranch Boulevard. This is a fun night of watching five local artists paint with acrylic paints on five separate canvases. Each artist chooses their own subject and after fifteen minutes they switch canvases with the next artist. In the end, all five artists will have painted on each canvas to result in some very unique and delightful works of art! All the canvases will be silent auctioned off and 100% of the painting proceeds will directly benefit local nonprofits and groups of the artists’ choosing. There will also be several gift cards from the Shake Station and the Pomegranate Frozen Yogurt that will be raffled off.

This year the artists are: Barbara Hart; Mavis Jan-Lai; Hao Penghe; Jerri Phillips; and Sally Wooldridge.  Barbara Hart’s painting will benefit the Big Cat Habitat & Gulf Coast Sanctuary. Mavis Jan-Lai’s painting will benefit the Friends of the Rocky Bluff Library. Hao Penghe’s painting will benefit the Rotary Club of Parrish. Jerri Phillips’ painting will benefit the Florida Cracker Trail Association. Sally Wooldridge will paint for the Bishop Animal Shelter. All five artists are local painters that have shown in juried shows or won awards. There will be an additional canvas that attendees may choose to paint, if they desire, that will benefit the Harrison Ranch Arts Guild.

This is a free event. Cheese and crackers will be provided. Attendees may bring a beverage of their choice. From 6:30 to 7:00 PM, attendees will have the chance to get to know the artists and at 7:00 PM the painting begins. Attendees may bid on paintings until 9:15 PM, when the paintings will be complete. Be sure to join us for this interesting and exciting evening! It's a fun night out, a time out with friends, a way to meet new people, and a creatively inspiring way to support local groups that do good work for our community!
