    Raise Your Hand Auction - A Call to Artists

    Raise Your Hand Auction - A Call to Artists

    On Saturday October 27th, 2007, the Western North Carolina AIDS Project (WNCAP) will hold its’ annual “Raise Your Hand” auction and dinner at the historic Grove Park Inn and Spa.

    As you may be aware, WNCAP started a tradition several years ago of choosing a “Signature Piece” to represent this most important fundraiser. The Signature Piece is used on all printed promotional materials, advertising, the auction program and the artist is highlighted in news articles. This provides us a great opportunity to provide additional recognition to our generous local artists who participate annually.

    Many artisans have requested that we begin the Signature Piece selection process earlier in the year, to allow them time to possibly create a work specifically for the event itself. We are therefore letting you know that we will be soliciting artwork for the 2007 Signature Piece beginning July 1, 2007. The Signature Piece will be selected in August, and then photographed for all promotional applications.

    If you are interested in participating in this year’s Signature Piece selection process or if you simply intend to submit a piece for the auction, please contact either Tracey Whitehouse at 828-230-0596 or Harry Brown at 828-215-3222 to get additional information. Your support is greatly appreciated
