Edgecombe Arts holding ‘Wine, Desgn & Create’ Thursday

PINETOPS — The Edgecombe County Arts Council would like you to join us at the

Blount-Bridgers House Thursday for a special Wine, Design, & Create For The Cause!  We typically host

Wine, Design, and Create events during fall-spring months providing

painting experiences on canvas or paper.  This month kicks off our

Wine, Design, & Create program.  Participants will not be using

typical canvas to create their masterpiece.  Instead, they will be

asked to bring a bra (preferably padded) and their creativity for an

evening of fun for a good cause!  This particular event is special

because we intend to give a portion of proceeds to Edgecombe Cancer

Support Foundation.  The Edgecombe Cancer Support Foundation assists

financially with patients during their treatment in regards to day-to

-day expenses such as gas, electricity, etc.  This is a wonderful way

to use your creativity, have a fun evening with friends and meet new

people, and support a worthy cause in our county.    Whether you are a

professional artist or an amateur or even if you do not feel that you

are an artist, we invite you to come and just have fun creating for

the cause!  Part of the Edgecombe County Arts Council mission is to

nurture and promote the arts and foster an environment of creativity

and provide access to art experiences. We will have some templates available, ideas to draw from, a variety of materials for collage, drawing, and painting.  The Arts Council will supply all art supplies, and, of course, wine and appetizers.  You may be a cancer survivor, a family member or friend

of someone who is going through treatment now, or remembering a loved

one who fought the fight.  And this is not just for the ladies.  We

encourage men to attend as well.  Let’s celebrate and support our

community through the arts!  Please join us for our event!

Reservations are required and space is limited. Contact us by phone or

email, 823-4159 or Joyce Turner at HYPERLINK ""  Costs

are $30 for Arts Council Members and $40 for Non Members.  Remember,

you are asked to bring a bra (preferably padded) as your canvas and

your creativity.  We will supply the paints and art supplies as well

as the wine and appetizers.  Vidant Edgecmbe Hospital will also have

an educational display for participants.
