Artworks Gala 2019 set for Friday

BIG RAPIDS — One evening each spring, members of the community gather to revel in the world of the arts, and this Friday they will see the arts come alive at the annual Artworks Gala.

The theme for this year’s event is “Bringing the Arts to Life,” and people can experience the celebration of creativity from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 17, at Roben-Hood Airport, 21325 18 Mile Rd., Big Rapids.

Serving as the major fundraiser for Artworks, the gala will feature silent and live auctions, and all tickets will include a raffle ticket for the chance to win a prize.

Guests also can enjoy specialty beverages and food prepared by Pere Marquette Catering, and can watch art be created before their eyes during a variety of demonstrations.

The activities scheduled during the evening include a food demonstration, a musical performance by Gheretta Harris and artist Tom Tomasek will complete a piece during the event, which will be auctioned off before the night is over.
