CCS 50 Buck Show
On September 12, CCS' Center Galleries staged a show requesting people donate a piece of art to their opening and had it revolve around the idea of $50. The tickets to get into the show were $50 (free if you contributed artwork) and to purchase a piece of artwork was $50. Needless to say, the multitude of friends of CCS, the Gallery and hordes of people donated well over 230 pieces to the show. The opening was a grand success as witnessed by the huge amount of people in attendance. Unlike other gallery openings where work is left on the walls to be enjoyed for a period after the opening, the walls were being picked clean a few hours after the opening. Sales were brisk and many happy patrons were seen taking home wonderful pieces by the end of the night.
