WHAT IS ARS GRATIA ARTIS:
This will be a show and reception to remember! Sacramento Fine Arts Center will present its 28th annual Raffle Drawing for Art, Fundraiser and Show-off Exhibit, September 13 – October 2 with a show-closing reception.
The Art Center will promote the contributing artists who have donated their pieces with an online gallery show. In the gallery, the Artist’s Statement will be prominently placed next to the artwork. If artist donates more than one piece, they will be displayed together. This show is to show-off the contributing artist’s work, their talent, who they are, and to give art collectors the opportunity to meet them. Sac Arts Center will mail special invitations to past and prospective art collectors throughout our metropolitan area.
THE RECEPTION AND DRAWING: This years ticket drawing will be a combination in person and virtual on October 2nd, 2-5 pm.
