Each year, the Upshur Arts Alliance sponsors the Strawberry Festival Juried Art Show. This is a great opportunity for local artists to show their work within the community. The display stands used for this event, made locally 30 years ago, are no longer serviceable or repairable and the Upshur Arts Alliance is seeking donations to purchase new displays. The expected cost is $2,500 for 12 units, hardware and shipping.
Any business or individual donating more than $500 to this project may request to have a sponsor sign attached to one of the stands for the following year and any excess funds received during this drive will go to the annually awarded grant fund. UAA has a 30-year history of funding arts organizations and educational arts programs in Upshur County. Please contact David Carson at 304-472-3890 or Maria Bray at 304-472-2773. You may also mail your tax-deductible contribution to The Upshur Arts Alliance, Inc, P.O. Box 395, Buckhannon, WV 26201.
