Tickets on sale for fundraiser at arts center

Live oysters, live music and a live auction will highlight the Jamestown Arts Center’s biggest fundraiser of the year, which is scheduled from 7-10 p.m. June 30.

The seventh annual summer soiree includes the opening reception for “Word: Text in Contemporary Art,” an exhibit that features artists who use text to convey meaning and develop aesthetic. The show demonstrates that when text is used successfully, the inherent lines and shapes become part of the picture.

With Danielle Ponder & the Tomorrow People providing music for the dance floor, the auction with feature big-ticket items, including a one-week vacation to Virgin Gorda, a day sail with lunch aboard the 43-foot ketch Flood Tide and a painting by Barbara Owen estimated at $3,000.

Tickets to the soiree cost $175, but members receive a $25 discount. A champagne preview an hour before doors open with artist Lesley Dill is an additional $50. That includes an exclusive viewing of “Word.”

Tickets are available online or by calling 560-0979.
