Artist helps boost fundraising effort

Gardnerville artist Pam Brekas has stepped up to support the Carson Valley Arts Council's capital campaign.

She has donated hand acrylic painted magnetic pins and pendants that the arts council will give to those donating $25 or more to the capital campaign, the first phase of which will retire the loan on the Copeland Lumber Warehouse.

The miniatures are in an abstract style. Each piece is hand painted on a domino, some affixed to a magnet and others on a pendant.

"They would make wonderful Christmas gifts," said Brekas.

The current goal of the campaign is to secure community support.

"We're really looking for donations of any amount," said Steve Farnsley, executive director of the CVAC. "When we get numerous gifts from a broad base, it helps secure large donations from corporate sponsors and grant-making organizations."

"Of course, the size of the gift isn't limited. We'd be thrilled to receive larger donations as well," said CVAC Board President Brian Fitzgerald. "The point is that people shouldn't be hesitant if they can only contribute a small amount."

Carson Valley Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so donations more than the value of these pieces of original art may be tax deductible as allowed by law. Federal Tax ID No. 84-1653859
