Feb. 5, 2018 - Come one, come all to the Black and White Ball! Nonprofit Children’s Repertory of Oregon Workshops’ (CROW) February fundraiser will once again be the talk of the town, as attendees sport their nest black and white attire, and can purchase handmade masquerade masks, created by a variety of local artists.
There will be live music by The Pop Rocks of Eugene, a wine spin to win, dessert dash and a silent auction. Two beer or wine tickets and hot appetizers are included with each ticket.
You’d better mark your calendar now and plan to have a “ball” with us!
In addition, Revelers Aerial Works will be demonstrating aerial acrobatics with silks and hoops throughout the event. This is a special preview of the artists’ work, as they will be premiering in Florence during CROW’s “Tarzan” musical production in April. Proceeds from the Black and White Ball support kids in the arts, so what could be better? The fundraiser will be held on Saturday, Feb. 17, at the Three Rivers Casino Resort Show- room, 5647 Highway 126 in Florence, at 6:30 p.m. CROW is seeking artists to paint/decorate masquerade masks for this exciting. Donated masks will be sold at the organization’s “2018 Black and White Ball,” and all funds will support youth scholarships, arts programming, educational materials and other vital expenses for CROW.
Paper pulp mask bases will be provided, but artists may use whatever base they wish, and whatever medium they wish.
Masks must be all black or white, with only silver or gold for accents.
CROW Artistic Director Melanie Heard encourages artists to “Be creative, be whimsical, be wild and have lots of fun!”
Artists will receive recognition at the event, and a discounted event ticket price for themselves and a guest. All masks must be completed and returned by Jan. 30. Earlier submissions are appreciated. For an information sheet and to receive a mask base, visit Florence Regional Arts Alliance Art Center, 120 Maple St., or Beaux Arts Fine Arts Supplies at 2285 Highway 101, Suite H.
