Arkell Museum Party and Raffle

August 2, 2011

Arkell Museum Announces Art Box Raffle and Party

Since mid April, the Arkell Museum has been exhibiting Art Boxes produced by seventeen regional artists. These boxes will be auctioned off at the Arkell Museum Summer Party on Saturday, August 6 from 7:00 – 9:30 at the museum.

More recently, an 18th box has been on display in the museum and library. This box, which was painted by Picture Perfect owner Phyllis Lapi, contains over $1,000 in gift certificates to area merchants. The box, with the 30 gift certificates enclosed, will be raffled off at the conclusion of the summer party on August 6th.

“This additional box offers a great opportunity for everyone to participate in the Arkell Art Box Summer Party fundraiser” says Eric Trahan, director of the museum and library. “The Art Boxes will sell for hundreds and maybe even thousands of dollars, which is great for the museum, but could put them out of reach for many. But everyone can afford a one dollar raffle ticket, and for over $1,000 in value, that will be quite a bargain to the winner.”

Raffle tickets, as well as tickets to the party and auction bid forms, are available at the museum and library at 2 Erie Blvd., Canajoharie. More information is available by calling 673-2314.

“We are very grateful to the area merchants who donated gift certificates to the raffle” says Trahan. “We hope the rest of the community shows as much support for the library and museum, and that everyone will also support the local merchants.”
