Thursday, September 15, at the Granada Theatre during the annual ARTWALK sponsor mixer, Alpine’s Gallery Night board of directors presented checks to eleven area school districts for their arts program. The schools were: Alpine, Marfa, Presidio, Valentine, Terlingua, San Vicente, Marathon, Fort Davis, Balmorhea, Alpine Montessori and Fort Davis Alternative Learning Campus (High Frontier).
Alpine’s Gallery Night, Inc. is a non profit organization celebrating and promoting the arts in the Big Bend Region for the last eighteen years.
Recently we introduced a new project called Savor the Arts, a fundraiser that raised $5,000 to be donated back to the school districts in the Big Bend region for their art programs. Honored Artist Cyrstal Allbright of Terlingua has generously donated the original piece that is being used in all this year’s promotions for ARTWALK 2011 to be raffled off on Saturday, November 19th at 9 PM at the Budweiser stage. “Pescado Despoblado” can be seen at Kiowa Gallery and will be around town at banks and other retail locations. Raffle tickets are $10.00 each. Proceeds benefitting next year’s Savor the Arts program.
