the mARkeT: a matchmaking mixer!


Hi friends!

Just wanting to share a great event I will be participating in this coming Saturday...

The Quincy Art Center is hosting a fundraiser mixer to allow artists and collectors to meet and collaborate on a commissioned piece of art.  This is a fabulous opportunity for you to obtain unique and meaningful art for your homes, while also giving back to the community.  Never collected art before?!  GREAT!  This is a perfect opportunity to learn what subjects, styles and local artists you may like... all in a casual evening of mingling and fun at the Art Center!

Art will be available in levels of $250, $500, $1,000 and $2,000+.  Collectors will commit to a commission at the event this coming Saturday.  A formal reveal party will be hosted Saturday, February 25 from 7-10pm.

The incredible line-up of local artists include:

  • Brenda Beck-Fischer, watercolor
  • Jennifer Bock-Nelson, detailed nature/ drive series painting
  • Steve Bohnstedt, fine art documentary style photography/ mixed media
  • Jeffrey Bruce, mixed media
  • Linda Buechting, watercolor
  • Joe Conover, encaustic
  • Judge Robert Cook, watercolor
  • Laura Stewart DeRosa, oil painting/ pastel drawing
  • Jamie Green, watercolor/ pen and ink
