Our First Ever Raffle!!!!

First, Happy New Year!!!  We wish you the very best in 2013, and invite you to keep up with us online, 'cause we have a great year of ART in store for you!

Tonight launches our first monthly raffle.  As we mentioned in an earlier post, every month a CGMSG artist will be donating an original, handmade work of art to be raffled in support of CGMSG's ongoing community arts programs and general operations.  Raffle tickets cost $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00.  You can purchase right here on the blog--simply click the PayPal icon on the upper right and choose your option.  EASY AS PIE!  The winning ticket will be drawn on the first Friday of each month (in this case, Friday, February 1st) and the next raffle item will be announced here on the blog the first Saturday of each month (in this case, Saturday, February 2).  A great opportunity to win amazing art and support our Gallery!

First up, we have Tracy Rosof Petersen.  Tracy is one of our "anchor" artists, supporting us from the very beginning.  Her sculptures, pottery and mosaics are beautiful and well-known in the area.  She has generously donated a lovely lighted design, featuring her signature "Peace" sign.  Here are the details straight from Tracy:

This versatile ceramic nightlight lamp vase can be used in 3 or 4 different ways. Use it as a vase with or without water, or a candle container or as a corded nightlight lamp. Each one is created individually and glazed by hand. This low-fire stoneware is twice kiln fired to over 2000°F, the temperature of lava. Looking through the mottled sunset orange peace sign, you can see the light reflecting off the warm white interior. The outside body is a soft satiny mint green with light rust showing through the layers of glaze.

Each nightlight lamp comes with a standard UL approved 6’ nightlight cord with a toggle on/off switch and includes a 4 watt clear bulb. Each bulb has been tested before it is packed for shipment. The lamp weighs approximately 3 pounds and is 9" tall and 6.5” diameter at the widest point of the rim, side to side and 5.5 wide from front to back.

I have used a variety of light sources to most accurately represent the colors of the glazes, with the nightlight cord on and the nightlight cord off, however, colors may appear slightly different on each monitor and in your home lighting. Please email
me with any questions.
