The Jasper Community Arts will celebrate volunteers and supporters as well as the opening of the annual holiday exhibit with a special public reception at the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center in The Galleries on Friday, December 3, 2021, from 5 to 8 pm.
The annual holiday reception also serves as a thank you and recognition to all the volunteers, patrons and community supporters for the arts in Jasper. The facility and programs serve thousands of people in the area. Over 150 volunteers devote countless hours helping to make the performances, in-school shows, gallery exhibits and other events happen. Jasper Community Arts also received the support of individuals and businesses, both in funding and material donations, which helps to stretch the budget. We are truly grateful for this wonderful community support and this is our small way of thanking everyone.
Food by Sander Catering will be provided at the holiday gathering along with a cash bar provided by Gaslight Restaurant. The event is free and open to the public. The galleries at the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center, located at 100 3rd Avenue, Suite A, Jasper, IN 47546, are open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, and Sunday from noon to 3:00 pm. School groups, clubs and students are welcome. Admission is free. Donations appreciated.
