Gelli Plate Printing Workshop

Arti Gras 2023
Arti Gras 2023 was a three part community art challenge and a fundraiser for Salt Valley Arts which ended with a Silent Auction on April 23. Ten photos were chosen to be used as artistic inspiration. Each artist was provided with one of the photos and a frame to be incorporated in any way the artist chose. Finished art was displayed and then auctioned off. All entry fees and auction money benefitted our community art center.
This community wide Masquer-aide Challenge donated all entry fees to the Taylor Jacobsen Art Scholarship Fund of the Saline Leadership Institute. Taylor Jacobsen was a well loved Saline art educator. The Taylor Jacobsen Art Scholarship Fund was established by the Saline Leadership Institute in his memory to provide access to art classes through Saline Social Services. Artists paid a $10 entry fee to create art inspired by their interpretation of the word MASK. A Reveal Party was then held to reveal the artists that created each piece. Guests were encouraged to create wearable masks at the party to get into the fall spirit. Artwork was on display from October 10 through November 9, 2022.
