Art Suitable for Framing
Art comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors- You know it’s good if you can’t stop staring! Members of the Memphis Chapter of Elpis Philoptochos will host “Art Suitable for Framing” on March 12, 2016 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. The event will take place in the Harry and Margaret Cotros Hall of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, located at 573 North Highland. We are asking for a donation of $10.00 per person for this year's charity and social event.
Our 4th annual fundraiser will once again provide the opportunity for Mid-Southerners to view and purchase a variety of drawings, paintings, and prints from Memphis based and regional artists to benefit the Children of Le Bonheur. Attendees of Art Suitable for Framing will be able to purchase the “It’s Greek To Me!” cookbook, which features a mélange of traditional recipes from Greece and other countries embracing the Eastern Orthodox religion. A cash bar and Grecian gourmet hors d’oeuvres will be served for your culinary delight.
Our guest artist, Greg Cravens, has drawn cartooning work including many activity books and coloring books for Memphis base companies like Shoney’s and Perkins restaurants, FedEx, Hampton Inns, and Memphis Grizzlies. In 2000, Greg began working on the syndicated comic strip The Buckets, featured in The Chicago Tribune. For a nominal fee, you’ll be able to have a caricature drawn of yourself, on-site, by our distinguished cartoonist.
