Call to Members!
Yard Sale/Fund Raiser
The San Pedro River Arts Council will be participating again this year in the Community Yard Sale to be held on Saturday, April 19th at the Benson Museum. This event was a great fund raiser for us last year, and we hope that many of you will have items to contribute for our tables again this year. Any sort of “White elephant” items, used house hold goods and appliances, old lamps, hardware, glassware, virtually ANY thing you might be wanting to get rid of—would be welcome!! You will be amazed at what people purchase at yard sales!! This is a great opportunity for everyone to clean out their closets, store rooms and garages, so if you’ve been thinking about doing some “Spring Cleaning” please save your “stuff” for the yard sale!!
If you have items to donate, please contact Shryl Miles (email@example.com) or Linda Stacy ( firstname.lastname@example.org). If you have LARGE items, we can arrange to pick them up before the sale! And you don’t have to worry about taking anything home again, as any items not sold will be passed on to the Hope Chest or Good Will; so please scrounge around and see what you can find to donate!!

CELEBRATE THE ARTS SPRING SHOW
The San Pedro River Arts Council is hosting its 5th Annual “CELEBRATE THE ARTS” fine arts exhibition and sale at Cochise College Benson Center during the month of March. Forty-six artists from throughout SE Arizona have entered more than 100 works of art in many different media—including oils, pastel, acrylic, water color, scratch board, graphite, and mixed media. The show is available for viewing at any time during regular college hours through March 27th.
There will be an open reception at the college on the evening of Thursday, March 5th, from 5:30 till 7:00 p.m. to which the public is invited. There will be refreshments and an opportunity to meet many of the artists, as well as look at the art work and vote for the People’s Choice award. We will also be selling raffle tickets for a chance to win an original, framed oil painting by local artist Clement Scott. Proceeds from the raffle will be used by the Arts Council to further our programs and help increase art awareness in the community.
