A Not So Silent Night

Featured Artist Show and Performances

Through January 15, 2022.

REACH will be open in January for visits to our Featured Artist Show in the REACH gallery and Nic Gareiss dance performances! Featured art in the show as well as a few of the auction items are available for purchase online. REACH’s 18th annual Not So Silent Night fundraiser was a grand success, generating over $14,000 for REACH. We are so grateful to 69 generous local artists and businesses who donated 135 items for this year’s online silent auction, and 111 folks who registered to bid. This event is successful because of all the wonderful support from our community!

REACH gallery will be open January 4 – 15 for visitors to view the featured art in person.
