Crystal is the traditional gift for 15th anniversaries.
But for its 15th anniversary, the Visual Arts Society of Jacksonville State
University would prefer that you buy art.
Specifically, the art offered up at its Spring Gala and Art Auction, set for
Friday night at the Anniston Museum of Natural History.
Local artists have donated many pieces, including paintings, photographs and
sculptures in hopes of raising money for JSU's art department. Money from the
art — in live and silent auctions — will be used for scholarships, visiting
artists, lectures and equipment for the department. Over the years, the society
has funded more than 20 scholarships.
Along with art, bottles of wine also will be up for auction, donated by local
Food, made by members of the society, will include beef tenderloin, pork
tenderloin, pasta salad, marinated vegetables, brie cheese with homemade
caramel, fresh fruit and assorted desserts.
Admission is $20 per person for society members and $25 per person for
non-members. For reservations, call 782-5626.
