It is called Bad Art, Good Folk. But is it? In this case, the Preble County Art Association could argue that there was not one bad thing about this event. The 2nd Annual Bad Art, Good Folk, was hosted by the PCAA on Saturday, April 2. Truthfully, the Bad Art was anything but bad. The evening yielded a generous $24,000 from supporters.
Nine Good Folk, their mentors, friends and family came together at The Grange for the festivities. The evening included a dinner of heavy hors d’oeuvres, live music from XXXX, a variety of other refreshments, and a no-holds-barred auction, at the guidance of John Kramer.
The nine Good Folk were split into three teams who competed to raise the most votes (worth $1 each) and collect the highest bids. Team Robert went home with the team trophies raising $11,305. The Single Artist win went to Kyle Hamilton who collected $3,389 between his winning bid and votes.
The teams included: Kyle Hamilton of Opti-Vise, Sheriff Mike Simpson and Lisa Wise taught by Patty Emerson. Steve Maggard of Henny Penny, Earl House of Summit Chiropractic and Pastor Dan Denlinger were coached by Peggy Schuning. Commissioner Rodney Creech, Debbie Kramer and Becky Morin were guided by Robert Coveney.
The Preble County Art Association would like to thank all of the Good Folk, the team leaders and committee members who made the event successful. The community support has once again been astonishing. Funds raised from this event support PCAA programs that serve the community and make Preble County rich in arts and culture.
