On Friday, April 12th from 6:30 to 9:30 PM the Harrison Ranch Arts Guild is hosting its’ 4th 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 a $100 Art Supply Gift Basket by Creative Art Supply (formerly Keeton’s in Bradenton) raffled off.

This year the artists are: Liz Estes; Mavis Jan-Lai; Hao Penghe; Todd Rogers; and Sally Wooldridge.  Liz Este’s painting will benefit the Children’s Guardian Fund for supplies for the children. Mavis Jan-Lai’s painting will benefit the Friend’s of the Rocky Bluff Library. Hao Penghe’s painting will benefit the Harrison Ranch Arts Guild. Todd Rogers will paint for the Christ Episcopal Church Food Pantry. Sally Wooldridge will paint for the Bishop Animal Shelter. All five artists are local painters that reside in Parrish and the surrounding community. There will be an additional canvas that attendees may choose to paint on, if they desire to, that will benefit the Parrish Arts Council. 

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 7PM the painting begins. Don’t miss out on this interesting evening!

The Harrison Ranch Arts Guild is a collection of artists that reside in the Harrison Ranch community that volunteer their time to create events to help enrich the community. For more information call Chi Kulig at 860-983-3767.
