Art Works Gallery launches scholarship in conjunction with their 8th Anniversary celebration

Submitted to Prospector

Saturday will be a busy day at Art Works Gallery in Downtown Grass Valley. There they will be celebrating the eighth anniversary of the gallery with a 15 percent off of everything sale, having a party with live music and refreshments, raising funds for the launch of a new scholarship, as well as having artist demonstrations.

Art Works Gallery strives to give back to the community that helps to support the gallery. This time the cause is especially near and dear to their hearts.

As a remembrance to Linda Kaneko, one of the founding members who passed away earlier this year, they would like to offer the Linda Kaneko Art Scholarship, which will be given to a local student. With every donation to this fund, people will have a chance to receive gift certificates worth $100 for use at the gallery.

For each $1 donation, one ticket is given, or six tickets for $5. For those who want to enter, you can get the tickets starting now until the drawings during the anniversary party on Saturday. You need not be present to win.

The usual Second Saturday artist demonstrations will be happening from 1-3 p.m.

Two artists will be featured. Bill Wilson will demonstrate some of his gourd art techniques, including wood burning, carving, cutting, dyeing, and painting.
