DAC hosts fundraiser and concert

From page A7 | September 04, 2013 |

The Davis Art Center and the Vita Academy of Sacramento are inviting local artists to participate in a Link Up silent auction fundraising event to be held at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, at the Davis Art Center, followed by an 8 p.m. concert.

The theme for the silent auction will be “Mirror Mirror on the Wall.” One-of-a-kind art pieces created from mirrors by local artists will be auctioned while hors d’oeuvres are served.

The concert will feature local musicians Pete Nowlen, French horn; Deborah Pittman, clarinet and Native American flute; Maquette Kuper, flute; Randy Fisher, violin and viola; Lena Andaya, cello; and Omari Tau, baritone.

Link Up is a general music curriculum developed through the Carnegie Hall Weill Institute and implemented by orchestras across the country. Link Up culminates in an end-of-the-year concert, where students sing and play along in an interactive performance experience with the local orchestra.

While students in New York perform with St. Luke’s Orchestra in Carnegie Hall, the Sacramento area students perform the same program in the Concert Hall at Sacramento State with the VITA Academy Orchestra.

This year will be the fourth year it has been offered in the Sacramento area, which included schools in Davis, Sacramento and Esparto.

Kuper implemented the program in the Davis schools the past two years. The success of the first year — in which third-graders at North Davis Elementary School participated — resulted in the highest enrollment to date in the pull-out string program offered to students in fourth grade.

This past year, Kuper taught the program to fourth-grade students at Montgomery Elementary School. The proceeds from these concerts will benefit the scholarship funds for classroom teachers to apply for grants to cover the costs for implementing the program in their classrooms.

Artists are asked to design, decorate and frame mirrors to fit the theme of the VITA fundraiser. Completed mirrors may be a variety of size and shapes — artists provide their own mirror. Submit images of your work (high-resolution jpegs) by Sept. 1 to be considered for inclusion in the promotional material and online gallery.

Proceeds from the auction help education and outreach programs. However, with high costs involved in creating art, artists may be reimbursed for any amount up to 20 percent of the final sale price of their object. The information should be included in the completed application and setting the price.

Finished entries should be delivered by Sept. 7. Call the Davis Art Center at 530-756-4100 to receive an artist’s application and to find out the drop-off location for the art pieces. When delivering finished artwork, please include the completed application; this information will be used in the auction program.
