Opportunity Enterprises to Host Eighth Annual ARTability Show & Auction

Artability-2013Opportunity Enterprises’ is busy gearing up for their annual ARTability Show & Auction. The eighth annual event will be held on Thursday, November 20th from 5:30 – 8:00 pm at Framing Concepts, located at 219 Broadway, Chesterton, IN. ARTability is free and open to the public.

Participant artists from OE create unique canvas artwork and ceramic pieces for the show throughout the year in collaboration with their Art Instructors. All canvas art pieces will be sold by silent auction using bid-by-text technology provided by AuctionsByCellular. The ceramic and glass pieces will also be available for purchase, but will be pre-priced and not part of the auction. Sales proceeds will benefit OE’s Art Enrichment Program, and participant artists will receive a commission on every sale.

For those interested in previewing the amazing artwork created this year, a link to photos of each piece can be found at www.oppent.org/art2014.

Appetizers will be provided by Popolano’s of Chesterton, and wine will be provided by Butler Winery of Chesterton. Visitors to the art show are encouraged to take advantage of an additional opportunity to support Opportunity Enterprises by also visiting Ashley’s Jewelry by Design, located at 221 Broadway, next to Framing Concepts. A portion of all qualifying purchases will be donated to OE. See any sales associate at Ashley’s for details, or call owner Craig O’Brien at (219) 926-9039 with questions.
