TAP to Host Annual Arty Party

(Dover, Ohio) – The Tuscarawas County Arts Partnership (TAP) is gearing up for an annual event that benefits the local arts and culture.

Officials explain that the annual Arty Party is designed to support the vision of promoting a visible, sustainable, local arts culture through advocacy, education, and funding. The event gathers the community together and provides an opportunity for artists, art collectors, and arts supporters to celebrate the arts, purchase local art, and support the advancement of the arts.

TAP invites the community to attend The Arty Party on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The party location, Fine Arts Skin, and Laser, the office of Dr. David Hartman, is home to his personal, fine art gallery – an extensive collection of large, carefully-restored oil paintings focused on three main themes: figurative art (of people and animals), realism, and impressionism – done in the styles of old masters of the 1600s through more modern works.

The Arty Party will host a Silent Auction featuring pieces from local artists. Guests will enjoy the opportunity to meet the artists during the evening. Auction artworks include works by Sara Dugger, Dave Demuth, Jennifer Contini and June Contini, Jon McDonald, Nic Rothgery, and many others. Entertainment will include music from Tera Nova Trio and Timberlake Dawn. Pointe Dining will provide the heavy hors d’oeuvres, and desserts with cupcakes provided by SugarFuse, which can be accompanied by French champagne, wine or beer.

“The arts are about bringing community together and making connections,” explains TAP Board Member David Mitchell. “The Arty Party allows arts patrons the unique opportunity to connect directly with the artists in attendance while helping to grow arts awareness and appreciation in Tuscarawas County.”

The donations received through the Arty Party will continue to support local projects, programs and education in the arts within Tuscarawas County.
