Masterpiece Mingle

April 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Masterpiece Mingle will bring together art, music and food to the McKinney Center this year on FridayApril 28 from 7-9 p.m.

This event, which sells out well in advance each year, will feature an exhibit of 125 different works of art, and each guest will take one of these works home.

The artwork, which has been donated by regional artists, include mediums such as watercolor, acrylic, ceramics, fabric art, jewelry and woodwork. All pieces will be on display for guests to admire throughout the evening until the event is over, and each guest takes their corresponding piece of art home with them. Guests receive their artwork at random. Each artwork is assigned a number, and each program the guest receives will correspond to one of those numbers. Guests can keep their original artwork, or find other guests with whom they may “swap.”

Guests will also enjoy live jazz music by the Jonesborough Rhythm Express, heavy hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction featuring more exquisite art, great books and even top-quality art supplies.  Beer and wine will be for sale by Main Street Café and Catering.

Tickets are $50. Tickets are limited to 125 as this is the number of works of art that have been donated. To purchase tickets, call the Jonesborough Visitors Center at 423.753.1010 or purchase online at Jonesborough.com/tickets.

This is the largest fundraiser for the McKinney Center. Each year proceeds support scholarships for K-12 grade students who have financial needs and other educational programming throughout the year.
