ArtsWorcester to Hold “Art on the Line” Fundraiser on November 4
Wednesday, October 19, 2016
"Art On The Line is both an installation--an interactive sculpture that's shifting and shrinking every minute after 6:00 PM--and an important fundraiser for us. When people snap up the 5"x7" artworks, or try their luck in the raffle, they're keeping our doors open and free to all,” says Juliet Feibel, Executive Director.
The event is scheduled for Friday, November 4 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Art on the Line
The event will feature three hundred original 5”x7” two dimensional artworks, donated by local artists. The art will be suspended from the gallery ceiling and sol on the spot for $20 each.
During the event, guests can view the catalogues of the night’s artworks in advance and plan to grab the ones they want the most.
They will also enjoy tapas by Bocado and be-bop jazz from Organic Chemistry.
First-In-Line tickets for priority admission at 6:00 p.m. are $40 per person. At 6:20, the doors will open to the general public. The lines for admission begin forming at 5:30 p.m.
Tickets for the raffle are five for $20

Salem, Massachusetts is best known for its infamous "witch trials" which occurred in 1692.
The trials lead to the deaths of about 19 men and women with hundreds more accused of witchcraft.
The events of the trials have been the focus of literature - such as Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" - and a historical reminder of the danger of hearsay poses to the justice system.

The battle of Lexington and Concord was fought April 19, 1775 and was the first battle of the war which the Americans won against the British.

Bostonians and Mainers are often chided for their one-of-a-kind accents.
New Englanders have a tendency to not pronounce their "r"s which gives you phrases like:
