Art Raffle Fundraiser

Do you have a blank space on your wall? Shelves crying out for a beautiful display? Would you like to help Ketchikan fund the construction of a new public library? Then get your raffle tickets for the Friends of the Ketchikan Public Library Art Raffle. Prizes include paintings by local artists Susan Copeland, Marilyn Lee, Diane Naab and M J Turek. There are also lovely beaded pieces by Sarah Corporon and Nancy Tietje, as well as sculpture by Sandy Shephard. Ken Decker has donated a Big Foot Studio Drum, and the Ketchikan Area Arts and Humanities Council has donated tickets for 4 for any one Torch Night event. Grace Freeman has also donated artwork. All proceeds from the raffle benefit the Friends of the Library New Library Building Fund. Tickets are $5 each or 4 for $20, and are available at the Ketchikan Public Library, Tongass Federal Credit Union, and the Home Office. The drawing will be held on Saturday, August 4 at the Blueberry Arts Festival. Best of all, you get to pick which piece of art you take home (order of selection is based on the order in which the tickets are drawn). The more tickets you buy, the more chance you have of taking home a beautiful piece of local art. And, the sooner we can build a new library for Ketchikan!
