The Sanford Brush and Palette Club will celebrate the 50th Anniversary Art Exhibition Saturday, Oct. 18 through Oct. 25 at the Hales Center in Sanford, North Carolina.
Nearly 100 members will feature between 500 and 700 paintings in watercolor, oil and acrylics. In addition, members who work in three-dimensional media will exhibit ceramics, mixed media, wood working, metal sculpture. Prior to the show’s public opening, entries will be professionally judged and awarded honors for excellence. Most all works will be for sale.
The Brush and Palette Club was founded in 1964 by a small group of artists who enjoyed each other’s guidance in painting. For many years, they met in their homes to share suggestions and inspiration. Their works are in private collections and exhibited in banks, restaurants, schools, hospitals, medical and corporate offices throughout the eastern United States.
The Brush and Palette Club is based at the Arts Studio on Steele Street in Sanford and uses this location to offer artistic workshops and host club meetings. One of the shining jewels of the Sanford B&P Club is the “Art Angels for Budding Artists” outreach program which provides art materials to all of the schools of Lee County as well as art materials for teachers to distribute to low socio-economic students who have an interest in art.
Club members also serve as guest speakers for schools and civic organizations as well as providing free hands on art workshops in the schools. The club is committed to continuing to enrich the lives of its members, Lee County residents and visitors to Sanford.
The Brush and Palette Club is a non-profit organization, funded by membership dues, tax deductible donations and commissions from the sale of art during the show. For more info call Doug Rowe at (919) 499-8686 or Diane Brooks at (919) 776-9720.
