Art Dash: Ready, Set, Gogh!

SAVE THE DATE! Our fifth annual Art Dash will be Thursday, March 24, 2022, at The Cargill Room at The Waterfront Restaurant and Tavern
(5:30 p.m. cocktail hour; 6:30 p.m. Dash promptly begins)

Please click here for a SPECTATOR Ticket.


We have four levels of sponsorship available. If you are interested in sponsoring this signature event, please contact Audrey Lucier, FSC director, at 608-791-5295 or by email.

Please click here for a sponsor opportunity sheet.


We will accept donations of artwork until March 1, 2022. Please contact Stacey Kalas by email if you are interested in donating your work.
While we don't jury art donations, per se, we do ask that artwork meet the following criteria: 

1. Artwork should be professional quality and categorized as fine art. 
2. Artwork must be original and created by the artist who is donating it.
3. Artwork should have a value of at least $100. 
4. Artwork should be framed (when applicable) and ready to hang/display. 

All mediums of art are welcome. Art does not need to have a spiritual or otherwise specific theme. 

ABOUT THE EVENT: Art Dash brings together local artists and community members in a celebration of creativity, beauty and connection. Everyone who buys a $100 ticket is guaranteed a piece of art–which one depends on how fast you can claim it. All of the art is worth at least $100, and the proceeds of this event support our ever-increasingly vital mission, so you can’t lose!

Where else can you get a piece of original art as a thank you for your $100 donation?

HOW IT WORKS: A $100 ticket buys you a spot in the Dash. After a preview of the art, we’ll start randomly drawing names, three at a time. As your name is called, you’ll dash to the piece you want. If someone claims your top pick before you do, you’ll need to make a different choice. Depending on when your name is called and what pieces are available at that point, you may get your top pick or you may need to select a second or third choice. 

Even though these are serious works of art, the Dash itself is meant to be a lighthearted competition. Plus, it’s all for a good cause, so we recommend you have a game plan and an attitude of openness and surprise. You are bound to end up with the piece of art you were meant to have!

The evening also will include a wine pull and caricatures by Tommy Orrico.

If you’d like to support the Franciscan Spirituality Center but are not interested in receiving artwork, please consider purchasing a Spectator ticket. As a thank you for your $50 donation, we’ll invite you to the gathering to watch the fun, cheer on your favorite “dashers” and artists, and have a chance to win door prizes. The FSC is a 501(3)c non-profit organization; your donation for a Spectator ticket is tax deductible as allowed by law. 

Whether you are looking to build your art collection, need a unique gift idea or just want to support the FSC, we’d love for you to join us. 

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR A LOOK AT THE AVAILABLE ART. We add photos as art is donated, so check back often!
