Local artists donated their talents to the first ever Art Extravaganza hosted by West Central Abilities (WCA) this past weekend. A total of 68 pieces were up for bid bringing in a total of just under $8000, which will go towards a new program facility for WCA.

Kim Edmunds, executive director at WCA, said the evening was a big success with some artists already making plans for pieces to donate in hopes of another event next year. Artists compiled a variety of artistic work for guests to choose from, everything from paintings to knitting and metal work.

Among the artists was Anna Polsfut who submitted a serigraphy art piece to the event. This was her first local art show, “It was a fabulous evening, good people, good food and amazing art and entertainment,” said Polsfut.

Edmunds proclaimed the night would not have been a success without the collaborative effort from all involved from the guests, volunteers, artists and entertainers. The funds raised will go towards the ongoing fundraising efforts for the construction of a new program facility.

WCA has raised approximately $100,000 to date, with goals of reaching $450,000.
