You can expect an evening of food drinks, and conversation with other supporters, along with meeting and getting to know the participating artists and writers. As an invitee we are asking you to fulfill one very important aspect of the evening: become a Collector's Purchase Award Sponsor. Since the evening's food and drink is donated, 100% of your tax deductible ticket will go toward sustaining your Art Center.

By becoming a Collector's Purchase Award Sponsor, you are committing to purchasing a painting at the party, and helping CCA fulfill our mission to create an arts-rich environment in the Gorge. This preview is an opportunity to see the show prior to the public opening.
The paintings generally range from $150 to $2,800. At the party you will receive a collector's ribbon to attach to your painting of choice.
Our preview event last year generated the sale of over 50 paintings, the Center's largest event of the year!  This year, the artwork of 40 exceptional landscape painters will be on display.
