Resident Artist Raffle!

Our resident artist raffle was a huge success! We were overwhelmed with the generosity of the students, staff and faculty here at Arrowmont this week.  We raised a grand total of $695 selling tickets to many, raffling four pieces of one of a kind art. TJ created a piggy bank, while Kent produced a wooden ring to mimic an anvil. Martina crafted a wonderful teapot, and Victoria a wallpiece. 

This was the scene in the lunch room as Jake Meder, faculty assistant for Dan Mayer's alternative book making class, drew names. He got everyone excited as he announced each winning ticket. It was exciting to see who the winners were and where our art would travel. Winners included a student in David Bultler's metals class- Tammy, two girls here for work study- Paige and Seana, and faculty member Dan Mayer! A great mix!

We had a special person to thank, our biggest supporter! Tammy donated quite generously to our cause, which will aid in the promotion and professional development of the resident artists during our time here at Arrowmont. We are grateful for her support, and the support of all who contributed. Thanks for helping to make our mission a success!!
