EATON — The Preble County Art Association last week announced the cast of its annual fundraiser, Bad Art, Good Folk.
Participants include Jean Bussell, Chad Creech, Travis Earley, Eric Marit, Matt Roberts, Brian Smith, Brad Unger, Meri Vosler, and Patty Wagner.
The nine Good Folk are working on a piece of art under the guidance of a professional artist, which will be auctioned off later this spring. The winner will be the individual with the most votes (dollars raised) by the end of the April 22 event.
To vote for your favorite Good Folk (or Folks), visit www.preblearts.org and follow the BAGF link. Votes will be collected until the close of the event on April 22. Not sure who to vote for? Each member belongs to a team represented by a professional artist. Professional artists include Erin Abney, Robert Coveney, and Gail Springer. Any vote cast for a team will be equally distributed to the team members. The team with the most votes receives a trophy, almost as good as the individual winner’s, and the right to brag, indefinitely.
Bad Art, Good Folk is supported by Opti-Vise IT solutions, Lawn Plus, LCNB Bank, Eaton Floral and Gatherings on the Green.
The fundraiser, in its third year, seeks to support the PCAA and the art programming it provides for the community. Tickets for this event will be on sale in March but voting is happening now. The Preble County Art Association is located at the Visual Art Center, 601 Hillcrest Dr. in Eaton. Programming includes a variety of art classes and workshops, painted pottery, birthday parties, and outreach programs. For more information, visit www.preblearts.org or call 937-456-3999.
