Groovin’ at Stepping Out for Art 2018!

Our annual fundraising event, Stepping Out for Art, was a smash sold out event on a warm evening in February, 2018!  Enjoying a throw back to the 60’s in dress and decorations, everyone had at a tremendous evening.  The music, the food, the auctions, the Berea Art Awards – were all fantastic!

Did we mention the volunteers?  So many wonderful people did so much for this event, starting with our steering committee that met for 8 months to plan the perfect evening – Peggy Baker, Gwen Childs, Kristen Dalessio, Diane Gammon, Joyce Hunsucker, Cecile Schubert, Haydee Verdia and party event designer Scharme Price.  Scharme created all the wonderful decorations for the event and created the evening program!! 

We also had a dozen bakers create cupcakes for the event which were delicious!  Thank you so much!!

                  Cupcakes were amazing!

This was the third year for the Berea Art Awards.  The winners are amazing people whose work stands for itself.

Kyra Morgan won Young Artist of the Year, Warren Brunner won Artist of the Year, and Belle Jackson won the Community Art Award!

    The Community Art Award went to Belle Jackson!
