Artist Reception… Art for the Forest
Midsummer Masquerade Art Auction
Ona Restaurant and the organizers of the Midsummer Masquerade are hosting a reception in honor of the 20 generous artists who have poured their hearts, souls, time and exceptional talents into creating a diverse and beautiful collection of art banners and other artwork specifically for the Midsummer Masquerade as part of the fundraising efforts to protect our coastal forest.
The Artists Reception will be held this Sunday June 1, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at Ona Restaurant, 131 Highway 101, Yachats. Chef Michelle Korgan of Ona will be providing appetizers (no charge) for the occasion. This is a wonderful opportunity to view the Art up close and in person without the distractions of all the activities and other visuals that will be happening the night of the actual event.
The focus of the Artist Reception is purely on the Art & the Artists. This is an opportunity to meet and mingle with some of these extremely talented artists and to learn more about their process.
These gorgeous art pieces are currently on display at Ona and will remain there for public viewing up until June 20th. They will then become an important element in the transformation of the Yachats Commons building into a Faerie Woodland on June 21, where participants will celebrate the longest day of the year, the joy and wonder of nature, the mystique of creatures from forest and fantasy, and the beauty of life. The Masquerade is going to be a great celebration as well as a benefit for View the Future, a community-based nonprofit which is working to protect and preserve the health and beauty of our precious coastal forests.
All of the artwork generously donated by the artists is being auctioned off as part of the fundraising efforts and 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go to protecting our precious coastal forest. The Art Auction has already begun online and is very simple to participate in. You can view the art and bid from anywhere,with a couple clicks of your mouse. So, whether you are able to attend the Masquerade or not you have the ability to contribute to this important cause. You can help with our forest’s preservation and have an exquisite, one of a kind piece of art as a keepsake.
