Event Description

The Arts Council’s longstanding gala fundraising event is back and more exciting than ever!

 

Somewhat Off the Wall, a unique art exhibition and party from which guests will take home original works of art, will be held on Sunday, September 18, from 5-9pm, at 760 Chapel St., New Haven, in the spectacular space that is home to the Odonnell Company.

 

This year’s event features drawings, jewelry, paintings, photography, pottery, prints, sculpture, and fiber by 50+ outstanding artists who have each donated three pieces of their work. These works will be on display on Friday, September 16 from 4-7pm for a sneak peak and can also be viewed online at www.newhavenarts.org as they become available.

 

Then, at 7pm on the night of the party, premium tickets will be numbered, put into a hat, and drawn at random. As each premium ticket-holder’s number is called, he or she will select a piece of original artwork to take home.

 

Each of the 50 participating artists will be given a premium ticket making only 100 premium tickets, at $100 each, available to the public! An unlimited number of tickets to the event are available for $35 (these will not include artwork).
