La Veta Annual Holiday Arts Fundraiser
Each December since 2008 the La Veta arts community has held an end of year culinary fund raising event. The first three years the funds went toward the Spanish Peaks Arts Council’s (SPACe) building expansion. Those inaugural events were so successful and well received that this fund raiser has continued. Now the funds raised pay for the Hwy 160 "Art Galleries" signs, provide art scholarships to locals and supplemental funds for La Veta youth-oriented art activities, e.g. Fridays for Fun (put on by the La Veta School of the Arts), SPACe’s Youth Art Workshops, as well as contribute to the Francisco Center for the Performing Arts (FCPA) and its Show Choir and to the La Veta Public Library’s Scary Story contest.
The funding beneficiaries this year will also include support for the efforts to obtain the highly sought Colorado Creative District certification for La Veta.
The event is on December 7 (a Saturday) from 5 to 7:30pm. Beth Evans of the Shalawalla Gallery produced the colorful poster and tickets; as she has done so graciously and creatively for the past several years. The 8 participating venues are: La Veta Gallery on Main, Spanish Peaks Arts Council (SPACe), Painted Horse Gallery, Shalawalla Gallery & Gift Shop, La Veta School of the Arts and Silvershoe as well as the two new venues this year: Crafted in Colorado and the Parkside Gallery of Wood Art.
The FCPA Show Choir will again provide Christmas caroling during this year’s event.
Each venue will provide some type of food and refreshment to ticket holders. The La Veta Gallery on Main, in keeping with longstanding tradition, will provide a selection of desserts. The other locations will provide taster or small plate offerings along with liquid refreshment. Each venue will also be holding a drawing for a prize of their choosing. All ticket holders will be entered in the master drawing for an adult art scholarship with an estimated value of $100. Tickets are $25 each and are available for purchase at the participating venues. Online ticket sales are available at:
Come stroll among eight La Veta art galleries and enjoy a variety of delicious foods and beverages, as well as an exceptional variety of artworks, while contributing to local art programs and scholarships for both adults and children.
There are a limited number of tickets available, so please plan to purchase your tickets early. Happy Holidays to all!
