UW Gala to Feature 30 Pieces of Artwork

United Way of the Bradford Area, Inc. will host the 2nd Annual Spring Arts Gala on Thursday, April 19th at the Bradford Club. The event will feature over 30 pieces of artwork donated from local artists, including paintings, framed photographs, wood carvings, glass sculpture, jewelry, and hand crafted furniture. Tim Asinger will act as head auctioneer for the event, with a guest auctioneer appearance by Woody Woodruff.

“When we planned the Spring Art Gala last year, we had a vision of creating an event that showcased the local talent of the Bradford community, in a festive networking atmosphere. This year, we have been overwhelmed with the scope of talent and variety of artists that have agreed to donate hand crafted items for the auction,” said Executive Director Megan Minich. “From students with the Bradford Area High School art club, to inmates with FCI McKean, to area artists such as Denise Drummond, Sean Huntington, Alan Hancock, Jay Monti, and Gina Zetts, among others, we know that this year’s gala will well represent the local art community,” continued Minich.

All proceeds from the event will benefit United Way, which helps support 17 health and human service agencies and 38 programs in the Bradford area, and touches the lives of many residents in the Bradford community.

Event sponsors include Northwest Investment & Trust Services, Pembroke Foundation, Zippo/Case Museum, W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery and Quinn Pump & Supply.
The event begins at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres, along with entertainment. Both a live and silent auction will begin at 7:30 p.m.. For a complete list of artists participating in the event, or to reserve tickets to the event, please visit www.uwbanews.org, or by phone at 814-368-6181.
