Farm Fresh

… Fresh on to the farm. Here is an occassional chronicle of a new family in a small town.

Paint Ellensburg

Last Saturday was Paint Ellensburg, Gallery One’s big fundraiser.  I was hired to help coordinate it because of my experience with Artist Trust, SOIL, and a few other arts orgs.  I think everyone was happy with the changes the committee made- moving it to a new space, dinner format and a few other things. I was more proud of it then I thought I would be.  Interesting how on one hand, it’s not worth stressing over the small stuff, but on the other hand, they make the event.  Appetizers, reflectors, balloons, folded napkins, etc.  While every auction has it’s must haves and can seem a bit dull to organize at times, every organization and therefore results are different. I mean you always have art handlers but they’re not always the Rodeo Court! Anyhow, always nice to throw a party for artists and arts lovers. Justin brought Porter and my mom brought Mary so it was fun for the whole fam!  We didn’t win anything, getting outbid for the gravel and Howard’s piece but at least they went to good homes.
