Be a part of our sixth annual 5×5 Art Dash on Wednesday, May 5! This year, due to social distancing precautions, we’re going to Zoom instead of hosting a live dash. Beginning at 5pm, ticket holders will be able to go online in a Zoom Party to choose a piece of 5×5 art which has been donated by a local or regional artist. East Camden and Highland Railroad has again graciously agreed to sponsor the Art Dash for year six.

Each ticket holder will be randomly assigned a number to select an artwork. With only 60 tickets available, this is the most exclusive event hosted by SAAC each year, and tickets go quickly, but everyone is invited to view the work while it is on exhibit in the Lobby Gallery for a 3 day preview, 9am-5pm, beginning May 3 and running through May 5, when the live Art Dash Zoom Party begins.
During the Zoom event, ticket holders will be called upon in order. They will get to see all of the 5×5’s live and ask questions if they want – just don’t ask who the artist is!
You must be present – on your phone, computer, or iPad – in the Zoom Party in order to select your painting. Anyone who does not attend the live Zoom event will be allowed to select a piece after the live event has ended. We will email specific instructions the week of the event.
Keep an eye on the gallery and our Facebook page to see photos of the 5×5’s as they come in. Watch for a special “share” of our margarita punch recipe and other Cinco de Mayo treats!
Kelly Campbell, who organizes the event each year, said, “I love so many of the events we have here at SAAC, but I must confess that this is my most favorite. It’s always so much fun! Bruce Coffey from East Camden and Highland Railroad has sponsored this event from the very beginning, and I can’t say ‘thank you’ enough to Mr. Coffey. And the artists! At this point, we have so many wonderful artists who are willing to donate the artwork to us that we’ve started alternating the years that most of them contribute.”
