The Capital City Arts Initiative is hosting a fundraiser at the Bliss Mansion from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. CCAI will sell art by area artists and “gently used” art books. The Bliss Mansion is located at 608 Elizabeth St.
Numerous local artists will have artwork for sale, including Cyndy Brenneman, Erik Holland, Claudia Knous, Sarah Lillegard and Deborah Stevenson, among others.
Friends of CCAI have donated some exceptional art books for your shopping pleasure. Hope you can join us for art, books, and lemonade in the garden.
CCAI produces exhibitions at the Carson City Courthouse and at the BRIC. The Initiative also presents events with the Library at the BRIC and Artists In Education activities at schools around the area.
