State of the Art Gallery Raffle Coming Up!

In celebration of its connection to the community,  State of the Art Gallery(SOAG) will partner with the Community Foundation of Tompkins County in a fundraising raffle.  State of the Art member artists will donate original artwork for the raffle, and 20% of the money raised will go to the Community Foundation to support its philanthropic work.

The raffle will kick-off at the Artists Market(located at the Farmers Market at 545 3rd St.) on Friday August 11th.  All art pieces will be on display at booth #59. Tickets, $10 each, may be purchased for any particular piece of art, and $2 of every ticket will go to the Community Foundation.  After the kick-off, tickets will be available at the Gallery (120 W. State Street) and the art work will be available for viewing at the gallery starting in September and via photos online at  The drawing will take place at the gallery on November 3, First Friday Gallery Night.

In celebrating 28 successful years as a cooperative gallery in Ithaca, SOAG members see this fundraising partnership as an opportunity not only to raise money for gallery repairs, but to join with the Community Foundation to encourage philanthropy in the community.
