sponsored

With so many things going on this week, sure enough something slipped through the cracks, and it’s a big one–the opening of the exhibit Intaglio a Go-Go: Etching Moves Forward, Friday, Mar. 20 at the Free Library. The event, which supports the Library’s excellent Print & Picture Collection,  includes a panel discussion moderated by the Print Center’s John Caperton at 6 p.m. followed by a silent auction of donated contemporary prints at 7 p.m. and a raffle of prints donated by Zoe Strauss and Shelley Thorstensen  at 8 p.m.

Kip Deeds, Cabin Fever. 2004. This is one of the works on exhibit and in the silent auction.

All the evening’s programs are at the Free Library’s Parkway Central Branch, 1901 Vine St.  The panel is open to the public and free.  After that, tickets required for this fundraising event.  There will be drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and tickets go for $25 ($10 for students) and up. The info on ticket ranges and benefits is here.

Raffle Tickets for the Strauss/Thorstensen prints are $5 each, or $20 for 5. And hey, you can order the raffle tickets over the phone if you can’t make it to the Looney event. Or you can buy the tickets at the Free Library Print & Picture Collection this week!
