The 3 Penny ArtRaiser at the Sprinkler Factory—Bidding Begins Saturday, April 27th

WORCESTER – This Saturday, April 27, from 6 PM -9:45 PM, is the much anticipated “3 Penny ArtRaiser” at the Sprinkler Factory, 38 Harlow Street in Worcester.

Inspired by Bertolt Brecht’s Three Penny Opera of 1928, the ArtRaiser is the Sprinkler Factory’s annual auction of donated original art. For artists it’s a great show to have work in, and a great way to support the gallery and it’s mission to serve the Worcester Arts Community. For a collector, or anyone looking to purchase some incredible, original art at a more than fair price, this is an event you won’t want to miss.

There are over 150 pieces of art, hung and ready for guests to bid on. Artists of all levels, from regionally recognized to local favorites have donated to the event, so finding something you love and taking it home for a good price is what many people look forward to.

Each year there is a theme to the evening, and while the work may or may not reflect it, the feel of the space and the evening does.  Tickets to the event are $20 at the door and include a Berlin Banquet, early american and european jazz by the Worcester Jazz Collective, cash bar, and the silent auction which begins at 6pm and closes at 9pm.
