PLATFORM is very excited to announce this year’s annual 8 X 10 fundraiser. 100 tickets will be available, and every ticket guarantees an artwork. When your ticket number is randomly drawn, you select a work of art from the wall. Will your name ring out early on, or will it toll solemnly as the night nears its end? Who is to say! Always a popular event, always a fun night, and all proceeds go towards supporting PLATFORM’s Programming and Outreach initiatives.

In addition to purchasing online, tickets are also available in the gallery office, Tuesday through Saturday 12:00–5:00 pm.
