The Westerville Education Foundation, Concord Counseling and The Arts Council of Westerville are pleased to announce a new, art-oriented community event, An Artful Affair. 

The inaugural event will take place on Friday, April 21, 2017, at the Everal Barn & Homestead, located at 60 N. Cleveland Ave. The first part of the event will take place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and feature art-oriented activities for families, as well as an auction of student artwork. Attendance is free and light refreshments will be available. Families are encouraged to join us at the event, roll up their sleeves, have some fun and share their students’ art work! 

Then, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the Everal Barn, the event shifts to "adults only" as guests enjoy live music, strolling appetizers and beverages. Midway through the evening, WEF will honor teachers who have utilized WEF resources and/or been recognized through various WEF initiatives during the year. Tickets for this event will be $35 per person, $60 per couple. Everyone in attendance will have an opportunity to take home several pieces of high-quality art created and donated by local professional and amateur artists, including items from student artists and clients of Concord Counseling. The art will be auctioned off throughout the evening in silent and live auction formats. 


Proceeds from the event will support Concord Counseling and help fund WEF initiatives to enhance the education of Westerville City School students by promoting and supporting education initiatives undertaken by district employees.


Donations of Student and Adult Artwork Now Being Accepted!

Local artists -- amateurs and professionals alike -- are asked to donate original art to be considered for inclusion as an auction item. We also ask our Westerville City Schools art teachers to make students aware of this opportunity and encourage them to create a piece of art to donate to this cause. We thank everyone in advance for your interest and support! If you would like to make a donation, or if you need to contact us with a question...


Be sure to reserve April 21, 2017, on your calendars now (download reminder postcard)! Additional event information and registration details will be shared as they are finalized in the coming weeks.
