Co-Chairing this years party are Phyllis Michael and Heidi Vititoe.
Past Chairwoman Maxine Plummer has passed the gavel after many years
of devoted service.
Phyllis and Heidi are carrying on in Maxines tradition. They
promise outstanding live music and intriguing finger foods.
Folks can play the Match Pack Raffle or join in Split-the-Pot. Everyone
will want to buy a key to the Jewelry Treasure Chest. Each year Alan
and Jeanine Terry, of A. L. Terry Jewelers, dazzle us with several
pieces of outstanding jewelry including the hottest fashions. If your
key fits, you wear a brand new piece of jewelry home that very night.
Brian and Lori Lintala have selected a backdrop reminiscent of the
Tuscan countryside. They will take your picture and have a copy ready
to go by evenings end. You make a donation and every cent goes
right to the Markay!!!
A Silent Auction will feature a specially selected group of items.
There will be a minimum bid on each piece. You write down your bid,
then you must check back before the evenings deadline to see
if your bid is still on top. We never know just what treasures will
be offered for your delight! Stop by the table as you enter the hall
and see for yourselves.
Genial Mark Anderson, our Volunteer of the Year winner in 2014, will
host the event. Seth Michael will repeat as Auctioneer. He will assist
you in purchasing one or more of the 20 pieces of fine art that will
be auctioned toward the end of the evening.
Yes, this is a fundraiser and now that were drawing so close
to opening the theatre for Live Performances in Music, Theatre, and
Dance, the need for these dollars is critical. However, it is also
a grand time to break out of winters funk, put on your party
clothes and kick up your heels. Come enjoy Art Under the Tuscan Sky.
of Rio Grande Student Show
Each year it is our distinct pleasure to welcome art work created
by students at the University of Rio Grande. We call the exhibit New
Dimensions in Art as we never can guess what these young artists will
bring to our doors but we always know it will be fresh and innovative.
You are cordially invited to join us Friday, February 13 at 7 p.m.
as we welcome the students with a Reception in their honor. You can
ask them questions about their work or just offer your congratulations.
There is no admission charge. The Gallery is accessible to all. Light
refreshments will be served.
New Dimensions in Art will be in the Gallery, 269 East Main Street,
Jackson, through March 15. Regular Gallery hours are Wednesdays through
Fridays from Noon to 5 p.m. and weekends from 1 to 3 p.m. Of course,
we are always pleased to make arrangements outside these hours for
groups of any size. Simply call Southern Hills Arts Council at 740-286-6355
to make arrangements.

DO YOU WANT TO SEE AT THE MARKAY???
are still many things to be done before we are ready to open the Markays
Theatre for live performances. If all goes well, were aiming
for a Grand Opening in 2015. A Programming Committee is hard at work
investigating performance companies to bring into our midst. Those
folks are eager to hear from you. What do you want to see at the Markay?
How often will you come? What can you afford to pay for a live performance?
There are lots of questions we want your answers. Please take this
survey and let your voice be heard.
