Sawdust Art Festival Unveils Collector Panels
The Sawdust Art Festival will hold its second annual original collectors’ panels fundraiser in support of its art education programs.
Due the success of last year’s collection of art panels, festival promoters decided to pursue a fundraiser based on a new series of art panels. Over 50 Sawdust artists have donated their time and artistic talents to create a diverse collection of decorative art panels using a wide variety of media.
Similar to last summer, the 2011 Original Collectors’ Panels will be on display around the Sawdust and will be pre-auctioned during the run of show. Visitors can expect to meet and greet the artists this summer on the festival grounds and learn about the creative processes and inspiration behind the panel pieces.
