POAC welcomes you to our first annual Art Party, a celebration and fundraiser which will include a gourmet buffet dinner and bar, our Appreciation Awards, an art sale and auction, and information about the work we do with area students in our Kaleidoscope and Ovations programs. Hosted in the beautiful Columbia Bank Atrium, the event begins at 5pm on Saturday, June 4th.  If the arts in Sandpoint are important to you, this is an event you don’t want to miss!  For more information or to reserve your seats by telephone, please call 263-6139.  Tickets are only available in advance.  Hope to see you there!
