Event Details

Join in the fun of this creative, collaborative event!
Sixteen local business owners, community leaders, and personalities have been matched up with a professional artist to create a piece of artwork together in a variety of media; including painting, glassblowing, ceramics, fibers, and more! One creative team will be crowned as the winner of the 2023 Art Synergy.
The sixteen pieces will be posted to the event platform on March 27 for you to vote on for just $1 per vote. The piece with the most votes will have its creator be named the Viewers Choice Winner!
A silent auction will also go live on the 27th and will run through the live event on April 1.
The night of April 1, the SAA and the Art Synergy participants invite you to join us at the art association for the final event where each of the pieces will be sold to a lucky winner in a live auction. A cash bar, delicious food by Emerald’s Eats, and live music by Mary Jo Curry will make this a fun evening for all!
Visit to sponsor the event or purchase an event ticket for $35! RSVP by March 17 for pre-sale price. A limited amount of tickets will be available at the door for $45.
Viewers Choice Voting and Silent Auction go live on March 27.
