Art & Culture Around the World is the theme for our 2018 June dinner, when we proudly gather for our favorite event – the presentation of scholarships to Racine area college students. What could be more gratifying than giving support and enthusiastic appreciation to young artists?
RAG will present $1,000.00 checks and one-year RAG Memberships to the following art students at the June Dinner: UWP - Mairead Catherine Quill, UWM - Meghan Polzin, Carthage - Jessica Thierfelder, and from MIAD - Alana Boone. Each recipient will show several pieces of her artwork and speak briefly about what she does.
Members will have an opportunity to ask questions and visit with our winners and their families over the course of the evening.
Our Starving Artist Fair supports these scholarships which have been increased significantly this year. Please plan to be a part of the Guild “family” that presents this well-known art fair. There are so many fun ways to volunteer. You could consider raising financial sponsorships from friends and family or businesses in the community. You could schedule a shift the day of the fair in the Silent Auction Booth or the Decorated Window Raffle Booth. Maybe you’d like to bring some of your work for the Boutique and work a shift there. You could be a booth sitter for artists who need a little break. These are just a few of the ways you can help. There will be more information and sign-ups at the June Dinner or, call Jill Castillo (262-639-2149 / 414-659-3901) to volunteer.
