Living Treasures Glove Show

A fundraiser and one step closer to our goal

The afternoon of January 13, 2019 at Mike Peck’s POTS Gallery in Fremont

That day brought together donated artworks from 82 Northwest artists with a group of interested artists and patrons for a fundraiser to benefit the NWDC’s Living Treasures Project. It was a raffle, and the anticipation was high, as each artwork was priced at an affordable $200…and everyone hoped their ticket would be drawn early.

The first ticket drawn? NWDC’s own Chris Wooten owned it, and she chose the piece by Tip Toland, the artist featured in the Living Treasures current project.

Volunteers made this event happen, including our roving raffle-ticket man, Don Myhre, seen here with Jean Marie Thomas, who would eventually draw those winning tickets throughout the afternoon.

This was also a time to relax for Larry Metcalf. He and Lynn Di Nino organized the show, and are the two people who really made it happen. Larry also curated the presentation of the show.

If you’re ticket was selected, and you chose an artwork, Julia Lowther and Natascha Bybee were there to help you pay for it.

That afternoon brought the Living Treasures Project about $15,000, a tribute to the generosity of the artists and patrons….and now, 66 artworks will be enjoyed by the lucky attendees. A special thanks goes out to the artists who donated artwork, and to Mike Peck for offering the gallery space that would present the Glove Show.

The theme of "hats" made the cocktail party video project fundraiser at Steve & Vincent’s studio seem even MORE festive. In addition to the art-packed environment, hat-wearing members who paid to come also brought abundant, varied and delicious appetizers. Larry Halvorson and Dick Weiss "manned" the bar.

Around 70 paid guests raised about $3300, after expenses, to help fund the Living Treasures Project. Project leader, Ron Pascho, introduced Tip (our current video subject) as many in the audience had never met her. She graciously thanked them for supporting the project. Ron also invited attendees to MAIL in further contributions . . . and some did.

Besides high praise for the appetizer-making volunteers and a big thank you to Steve and Vince for letting us take over their space, we'd like to note appreciation for Larry Metcalf who really knows how to throw a party!
