Last night was Topeka Performing Arts Center’s (TPAC) 10th annual Grape Escape, a wine-tasting auction event to raise funds for TPAC. Brandon and I went, along with several of our friends. We had a great time and got to sample lots of different kinds of wine. I also had a painting, Deep Sea, that I had donated for the silent auction. The last time I saw the bid sheet, it was over $250.
Before we went to Grape Escape, we made a couple of First Friday stops. We stopped by Creative Art Photography & Gallery and saw a really nice show by Donna Rae Pearson. We also visited the Family Service and Guidance Center’s temporary exhibit in Westboro Mart to preview the artwork that will be up for auction at Works of Heart on August 17. It’s a really nice selection of all different types of artwork, including lots of great work by the children that participate in some of the programs that Family Service and Guidance Center offers.
