About the Event

The Blanchet House Young Professionals Board kicks off its first annual art show fundraiser, On The Ledge. This is a unique opportunity to purchase limited edition prints from a curated collection focused on local artists. As COVID-19 has shaken our world, we want to shine a light on the growing problems of food insecurity and housing instability through an online art show. This event serves to introduce the mission and values of the Blanchet House to an audience looking for ways to support the community. Originally intended to be a traditional art show and fundraiser, we moved to an online event. We recognize the creative community has also been hit hard by this pandemic, and intend to use the low costs of an online event to share more profits with makers. We’re all painfully aware of the dire personal situation the pandemic has created for so many around the world, but it’s sometimes more difficult to find ways to address this pain and struggle going on in our community; it can all be so overwhelming. Blanchet provides myriad opportunities to engage with the community in need and enables us all to be a part of the solution to a growing problem. The art pieces selected will be a primary point of discussion focused on the roots and experience of the issues Blanchet aims to address, as well as the access to solutions Blanchet provides.

The Art: Limited Edition Prints

50% of each sale will benefit the Blanchet House, with the remaining 50% going to the artist. Blanchet House will produce and ship high quality, 10”x10” giclée prints at the close of the online market. Each print is priced at an accessible $50 to attract a wide audience and accounts for the financial uncertainty of this time.
