Wet Paint Padanaram Harbor _arty Fundraiser Party

from 35.00

Join us as we celebrate the beautiful Padanaram Harbor with a plein air painting event and _arty Fundraising Party. Talented artists from near and far will gather on this late summer day at various public access points to paint the beautiful scenery of Padanaram Harbor and Village. Get an insiders view of how they see and create as it happens. Then gather at the South Wharf Yacht Yard & Marina where the paintings will be judged with prizes awarded. The paintings will be offered for sale with proceeds going to the artist as the party gets underway. Surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Harbor, we’ll relax as the silent auction get underway with hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, and live music. Mingle with the artists as the sunset approaches adding nature’s magical touch. Help us to continue our mission of bring art and culture to the community, supporting local artists, our educational offerings and cultural events. The Dartmouth Cultural Center, Inc is a federally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
