CK Arts Center issues call for festival patrons

-A A +A

The 48th Spring Arts Festival will be Saturday and Sunday, April  28-29, and the Cedar Key Arts Center is seeking individuals who want to support the festival by becoming a Purchase Award Patron.  It's fun, supports the artists, the festival, and this year, there's a money back guarantee.
   A Patron is an individual who purchases a coupon in advance of the festival that works like a prepaid gift certificate.  Each $250 coupon equals $225 of buying power toward artwork of your choice. Coupons can be combined, cash can be added or, if the item purchased is less than the face value of the coupon can get change from the artist.
There is no restriction on what artwork you choose. Once you’ve decided, simply pay the artist at festival with the coupon.
In addition Purchase Awards Patrons receive:
n Ribbons to present to the artist at the time of purchase. Artists value this recognition and enjoy displaying the ribbons
n An invitation for two to the Artist Reception at the Cedar Key arts Center, 5-6:30 p.m. Saturday evening of festival.
n A money back guarantee (if you can’t find something you like we’ll refund your coupon Sunday afternoon.
   So, if you know you enjoy shopping a festival and most likely will buy something for yourself or someone else, you can help this and future festivals by becoming a Purchase Award Patron. 
   This program demonstrates community support for the Fine Arts Festival which enhances its reputation and helps attract the best artists to our festival. In addition there is a 10 percent tax-deductible contribution to Old Florida Celebration of the Arts that helps cover festival costs.
