The Artists' Group of Charlestown launched "The Children's Chair Project" at it's Spring Show this past weekend at the StoveFactory.
Seven artists have painted adorable children's chairs with historical, children's and/or book themes. These chairs will be raffled off on October 20th at the 15th Anniversary Gala for the Artist Group of Charlestown. Raffle tickets will be sold until that time at various locations throughout Charlestown. Locations will be announced in advance. Raffle tickets are $10 apiece and you will have ample time to buy as many as you like.
The chairs are currently on display in the windows of the Bunker Hill Florist. All proceeds will benefit the Artists Group of Charlestown Gallery.
This is an opportunity to take a chance on an original work of art that can be handed down in your family for generations to come.
The Artists Group of Charlestown is a 501c3 corporation organized to promote the visual and related art through education programs and sponsored events in the community, to provide scholarships to local students with interests in pursuing the visual and related arts, and to provide an atmosphere for developing and maintaining interest in the visual and related arts.
