Lindsay cultural arts dinner to be held
On Saturday night Lindsay artist Ira Slack’s work along with those of Edgar Payne and other California artists will be displayed at the Lindsay Cultural Arts Council Dinner, meeting and fundraiser.
The collection, made up of about 30 pieces which feature mostly landscape art, will be hung up on the walls of the old library at 165 Gale Hill.
“The Art Association was a really booming organization in the 1950s, 1960s and the 1970s.
The ladies collected artwork and they would have artists come and demonstrate. The artists were not real well known, but their work has appreciated in value since then,” said
Councilmember Pam Kimball who is the current president of the Lindsay Cultural Arts Council.
Kimball pointed out that the collection has waited for ten years to find a home. Saturday’s dinner will feature a program that will talk about the art collection and the installation of the new board members.
According to Carmela Wilson, who is the secretary of the organization, the funds raised from the dinner will go towards museum renovations.
The social hour begins at 5:30 p.m. and the dinner starts at 6:30 p.m.
For tickets which are $25 per person call Wilson at City Hall at 562-7137 or Kimball at 562-1027. Reservations may also be made by calling Wilson and donations are accepted.
