Good Art, Bad Folk involves local community residents to create a personal piece of art. This friendly competition encourages the artists to get votes, from supporters. The cost to sponsor an artist is $1 per vote. Voters can vote as often as they like. Proceeds benefit the Preble County Art Association to make art available and accessible to the Preble County community. Learn more and vote online at http://vote.takepartinart.net. The PCAA accepts credit cards, cash and checks.
The artists’ pieces will be up for sale at a live auction, hosted by John Kramer. The participant accumulating the most “value” for their work, wins the notability of being BAGF Artist of the Year.
In addition, the PCAA will have a silent auction which is sure to draw attention worldwide, and live music by the Lawson Reunion Band. Adult and kid beverages will be available.
