Under the Cowboy Moon

An Evening with Belinda Gail and Dave Stamey

Clock Auditorium, RHS, July 27, 7:30 p.m.

Proceeds benefit the Redlands High School Historic Mural, and RAA Artists are invited to show Western Art!

A celebration of The National Day of the Cowboy, will include this Performance at the high school. RAA is being invited to show Western related artworks in the foyer of the Clock Auditorium on that evening. RAA artists are invited to bring individual artworks that specifically relate to “Western” or “Cowboy” themes. Artists will be responsible for delivery, display and removal of artwork on the afternoon/evening of the performance. Artwork may be offered for sale, or to create “contact” information for future patrons. Any sales “on site” should result in a percentage of the sale going to the fundraising cause.

The Margaret Clark Gallery Committee (MCGC) will be heading up the display and arrangements for the show. All of the proceeds from the Concert admission fees and a percentage of art sales will go directly to an RHS Art Murals Project. Christine Curry Coates will be showing the featured Historical Mural Project, a full rendition of the original RHS Administration Building next to Clock Auditorium, destined for the large, north-facing exterior wall of the Boys Gym. Concert attendees may make donations directly to the project and may choose to buy one of your original pieces of Western Art. RAA artists who would like to display work (and take total responsibility for their participation) may contact Christine Curry Coates, or John Fisher.

An additional opportunity to show Western Art, will be on the following day at Barnes and Nobel for a Western Authors Book Signing event. Again, the MCGC will host an art display on that location for only that day and artists are responsible for delivery, hanging and removal of your work on that day. There are no sales of artwork at Barnes and Noble, however you can post contact information.

The MCGC plans to continue providing more opportunities for Redlands Artists, and RHS Students to do mural projects on the many available walls at RHS. Join in anytime. We can use your help, dedication and artistic ideas. Remember, we can make a difference when we work together.
