All our artists live and work in the
community. Lake Oconee has been very supportive of Art of Oconee, and we love having an opportunity to give back. Lake
In the true spirit of the holiday season, we are partnering with
St. Vincent dePaul to raise
money to benefit area mission work.
The artists of Art of Oconee are again generously donating art to the lucky winner of a raffle. Fifteen pieces of art have been earmarked with little yellow ribbons in the gallery. The selected art includes paintings, jewelry and pottery. Raffle tickets are being sold from now through Wednesday December 5 at Art of Oconee, Dress the Walls, Christ Our King and Savior Church and other locations in the area. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20 and all proceeds from the raffle will go directly to St. Vincent DePaul. For more information, call the gallery at 706-431-2046.
On the evening of December 5, from 5 to 8 PM, Art of Oconee/Dress the Walls will host a special Holiday Open House including complimentary wine and appetizers. On that evening, the lucky raffle winner will be drawn and the winner will be able to choose the artwork of their choice from the designated pieces. Stop by the gallery to see the designated pieces and to see the exciting new art. All the art is original and created by Art of Oconee artists.
St. Vincent DePaul Society was organized by Frederic Ozanam in 1833 in an effort to reach out to the needy. The local chapter is very active in the area and depends on the generosity of the community to fund their mission efforts. The fundraiser is an easy way to support their activities.
