Spring Bound V Saturday, April 6, 2019Tickets to the Friends of the Sewickley Public Library’s fifth installment of the annual Spring Bound fundraiser go on sale Thursday, March 7th!

Spring Bound V will take place on Saturday, April 6th at the Sewickley Public Library. The event will open with a vernissage between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. on the second floor of the library at 500 Thorn Street in Sewickley, where the children’s department and the community room will have been transformed into a gallery. Guests will enjoy champagne and hors d’oeuvres and have the first opportunity to view and purchase art as they mingle with some of the artists. Tickets for the one-hour vernissage are $75 and include a $25 credit toward purchase of an artwork of $100 or more.

The exhibit and sale will continue from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. with wine and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets for this portion of the event are $25. The evening will also feature live music by John Burgh and a special guest.

More than a dozen Pittsburgh area artists, some well-known and some new, will show their works at Spring Bound V. Among the artists featured will be Mark Panza, whose merged photos and photo boxes have been a hit at previous Spring Bounds; Ron Donoughe, whose work can be found at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Heinz History Center, Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art and elsewhere; and Judy Barie, who is Director of Galleries at Chautauqua Institution and who has had work exhibited around the country.

Proceeds from the event benefit the library.

Starting March 7, tickets can be purchased at sewickleylibrary.org/spring-bound or at the library’s circulation desk.
