  • Thank You to Everyone for Supporting Viva Las Artes!

    We held our biggest fundraising event of the year Viva Las Artes!, raising over $19,000 in support of our mission to enrich the community through the arts. The theme was “Green”, offering a variety of recycled treasures, local products, services and array of eco-friendly items donated by over 60 local businesses, artists and individuals.

    More than 100 guests and volunteers turned out for the event, enjoying a sampling of regional cheeses from Jasper Hill Farms and Cabot Creamery, a delicious meal by Juniors at Stowe, and silent and live auctions with Eileen Blackwood and Lynn Goyette as the auctioneers. Guests were encouraged to make direct donations to River Arts’ free family programs, such as Music & Movement and the BIG & Messy ART Space, a new pottery studio, and scholarships, raising almost $3,000. In addition, seven local businesses underwrote the event as sponsors, led by Union Bank, Bourne’s Energy, Guy’s Farm & Yard, and the Alchemist, all contributing to a successful event.

    River Arts extends its thanks to all of the businesses, organizations, volunteers and community members whose support makes the organization strong, and allows it to continue providing multi-disciplinary opportunities for self expression, creativity, inspiration and connection through the arts.
