Out of the Attic
An Upscale Art Resale
West Main Artist’s Co-op Announces their Spring Fundraiser.
Art is fundamental to our humanity. It builds bridges between cultures and ethnicities, promotes tourism, improves academic performance, and strengthens local economies. Non-profits alone generate as much as $135 billion in economic activity annually in this country. The donations and support received last year during our Fifth Anniversary Gala helped us to complete the purchase of furniture and lighting for The Venue at West Main, completely upgrade our office equipment, and market the Co-op and Venue to local businesses. Support this year will be allocated toward special projects that will enhance our building, and promote the work of our members.
Throughout the months of March and April, the co-op has accepted donations of previously treasured, original works of art from local, generous patrons. Some of the donations include photos, limited edition prints, sculpture and paintings, all original, signed works of fine art.
On Thursday, May 12, West Main Artists Cooperative will host the opening night of its Spring Fundraiser, Out of the Attic: An Upscale Art Resale, with a reception and silent auction in The Venue at West Main, 578 West Main St. in Spartanburg, from 6 to 8:30 pm. This fundraiser event will be an opportunity for the public to expand or start an art collection by purchasing donated, upscale works of art and fine crafts at reasonable prices. Entry to the event is a $20 donation in advance or at the door. Food, drink, and live entertainment will be provided to our guests who will be given first chance to purchase and take home newly acquired treasures, all while enjoying the company of local artists and members of the Co-op.
All donations are important to the continued success of WMAC. Help them build bridges to their community by attending Out of the Attic: An Upscale Art Resale or making a donation on their website, http://www.westmainartists.org or on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/westmaincoop/.
