Art$Pay & Farwell4Hire Together!
Get excited for incredible art from some of the region's most talented practitioners AND shop for a good cause! The Art$Pay artists are teaming up with Farwell4Hire and raising money for Cystic Fibrosis.
This year Art$Pay is taking our Annual Member Show in a new direction - a unique two part event designed in response to the pandemic and with something for everyone.
Part One will be totally virtual so you can enjoy the art from the comfort of your home. We’ll be turning the Art$Pay website homepage into a virtual shopping catalogue of our members’ original art, including an online silent auction and art picks from these well-known people in our community …
