Your Chance to Own a Genuine Object d’Art Masterpiece
The Shabby Chic (pronounced; “sheek”) auction from 6:00 to 8:00 PM this Saturday at the Brock Performing Arts Center is your chance to pick up some “Shabby Chic” décor and furnishings at the Shabby Chic Auction.
Artists, craftsmen and designers from across Davie County spent the spring discovering their inner artist, letting their creative juices flow and transforming everyday items into objects d’art. You won’t believe it ’til you’ve seen it.
Beyond Reason ~ Juried Art Exhibit and Reception
In conjunction with the Shabby Chic Auction from 6:00 – 8:00 PM, Davie Arts is hosting a reception highlighting the works of artists participating in this year’s “Beyond Reason“, a juried art exhibit of mixed media art with beautiful and unique pieces from local artists. The winners of this year’s Beyond Reason juried exhibit will be announced at the close of the auction.
Preview Shabby Chic Auction Items ~ In Person or Online
The Shabby Chic Auction items are on exhibit at the Brock Performing Arts Center in Mocksville. Hours this week and are available for preview Monday through Friday from 12-5 PM. you can also preview many of the Shabby Chic items in the gallery on the Davie County Arts Council Facebook page.
Recycling old furniture and fabrics is an important aspect of the Shabby Chic look. This is where the Davie County Shabby Chic program comes in. Artists, craftsmen, and designers (or those who aspire to one of those titles) visited Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore at 1035 Yadkinville road back in April and picked up one or more items worth up $50 for free to use as the basis for a piece of art, craft, accessory, or…well, you name it.
Perhaps Shabby Chic can best be summed up as stylish rather than fashionable, where the style reflects quality as opposed to newness.
Two for One Deal
Everyone loves a two-for-one deal, and that’s precisely what the Davie County Arts Council and Davie County Habitat for Humanity have teamed up to create. The Shabby Chic Exhibit and Auction is raising funds for affordable housing while simultaneously giving folks the chance to discover their inner artist — or at least have fun trying.
Beyond Reason and the Shabby Chic Auction are wonderful examples of how your Davie County Arts Council is accomplishing its mission, “Connecting People with the Arts”.
