Rick Harris donates painting for Art Auction

Shake Rag Alley will be hosting its Second Art Lottery - Everyone Wins on Saturday, October 3rd.

This is going to be a gala event! 100 art canvases (8" x 8") created  by local artists will be auctioned off. Only 100 tickets will be sold. Each ticket holder wins a canvas. Therefore, Everyone Wins!

Sounds like fun doesn’t it!  Not only is there going to be lots of great art, but there will be live music performed by Point 5, drinks and yummy desserts. This fundraiser is the Grand Opening for the newly refurbished Quonset hut -the Lind Pavilion, named for the Lind family who have been instrumental in the renovations of this facility. This new classroom space is an marvelous addition to the SRA campus.

Need more art action? New this year will be a silent Attic Art Auction. Friends of SRA have donated pieces from their personal collections to be auctioned off for this special fundraiser. I know you are going to find something in the auction that you can’t live without.

Mineral Point artist Rick Harris created and donated a folk painting of Shake Rag Alley for specifically for the live auction. The 24”x36” oil on canvas is called: JUST ANOTHER DAY ON SHAKE RAG STREET, is inspired by the amazing things that have been know to happen at Shake Rag. Rick’s painting imagine everything from flying saucers to tommy-knockers and alpacas strolling along the alley. Rick has found tremendous joy and inspiration from  Mineral Point- calling it home for over 5 years.  Rick has been creating his style of whimsical paintings for about 15 yrs. His paintings are in private collections all over the U.S. and U.K.
