Dr. Peter Blume and the Affiliated Foot and Ankle Surgeons have sponsored the Arts Council of New Haven’s “Somewhat Off The Wall” event. The unique event is designed to connect New Haven community members with local artists.
A description from the Arts Council’s website:
Somewhat Off the Wall, a unique art exhibition and party from which guests will take home original works of art, will be held on Sunday, September 23, 2012 from 5-9pm, 760 Chapel St., New Haven, in the spectacular space that is home to the Odonnell Company.
This year’s event features drawings, jewelry, paintings, photography, stained glass, pottery, prints, sculpture, and printed textiles by 50 outstanding artists who have each donated three pieces of their work. These works will be on display to the public on Friday, September 21 from 11:30am-1:30pm and again from 5-7pm for a sneak peak.
Then, at 7pm on the night of the party, numbered premium tickets are put into a hat and drawn at random. As each premium ticket-holder’s number is called, he or she will select a piece of original artwork to take home.
Each of the 50 participating artists will be given a premium ticket making only 100 premium tickets, at $100 each, available to the public! An unlimited number of tickets to the event are available for $35 (these will not include artwork). Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
