“This event celebrates local art and makes original art available to everyone. We want all artists in our community to have a chance to express their creativity whether they are younger or older, emerging or professional. The art will be amazing and the price of $20 per piece makes owning a piece of local art accessible. Our goal is that the event encourages art appreciation and art collecting by all! We like the idea of people being able to start their art collections and come back each year to add to their collection. The artists have voiced so much excitement for this event. I have a feeling we will be blown away at what will be displayed,” said Carrie Schulstad, Executive Director of the DCA.
