Art Auction and Festival Have Banner Year
With a great Art Auction Committee, generous Sponsors and Underwriters, creative artists, excited art patrons and no rain boots needed, the Star Spangled Reflections Art Auction generated over $93,000 this year.  It was our pleasure to honor Betty Shamel, 2011 Art Festival Poster Artist and 2011 Honorary Chair Herb Booth.  Over 320 Art Fest Volunteers welcomed 9,000 guests to our 2011 Rockport Art Festival on July 2nd and 3rd.  The Festival generated over $60,000 to the Center, and tens of thousands of dollars to the Festival artists.

Thanks to Art Auction Chairs Julia Dutton & Patsy Griggs, and Art Festival Chairman John Kidwell , as well as our many committee chairs and festival volunteers for their hard work and dedication!
