ART FROM THE ATTIC - Saturday, September 12, 2009 - Battle Ground Village!

The Battle Ground Art Alliance presented “Art from the Attic,” an inventory reduction and seconds sale at Battle Ground Village.  It was held in conjunction  Battle Ground Farmers Market, Saturday, September 12, 9 AM to 3 PM. This was a free event with donations of canned goods accepted for North County Community Food Bank.
The abundance of artworks created for spring and summer events results in surplus works. Finding storage space is a challenge for artists of 2-dimensional works—paintings and photography—and even more so for artists of 3-dimensional works—pottery and sculpture. The artists’ challenge, however, is a boon for art collectors.
The double purpose of “Art from the Attic” was to connect surplus artworks with appreciative owners, and to further BGAA's mission to promote art appreciation in the community. Buyers at the event found art they love at less-than-expected prices.
There were tables of glass, pottery, paintings, cards, photographs, jewelry and ovo art. Some of the participating artists were Elise Astleford, Peggy Bird, Janet Borst, Carole DeGregory, Linda Hattershide, Jan Leeuwenburg, Shirley Morsman, Marilyn Ray, Paulette Smith and. Jodi Tripp.
