SPECIAL TO THE SENTINEL

“A Tiny Fundraiser” continues at the Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/Douglas County, in partnership with the CAC satellite organizations.

For each mini Thursday night reception, the CAC will remain open until 7 p.m. with themed nights, refreshments, art demos, door prizes, and much more.

The receptions give attendees a chance to enjoy the fun, relax, and get in touch with their creative sides supporting the local arts.

The exhibit features a room filled with 6x6 artwork by artists all around the community, each for sale at only $20. All proceeds raised will help support the CAC’s mission and programs throughout the year.

Guests at receptions will receive raffle entries into nightly drawings. In addition, purchasers will receive a raffle entry into a larger prize drawing at the finale “Fiesta de Arte” reception on Aug. 20.

On July 30, the Douglas County Art Guild will host an ice cream party for the community.

While following state regulations and best practices for the safety of all, attendees can view the gallery and share some laughs with activities to boot.
