Bingo Night this Friday! and Castle Birthday Party NEXT weekend!!

Got plans the day after Thanksgiving?! WELL NOW YOU DO.

Join WomanKraft this Friday, November 24 from 7-9pm for BINGO NIGHT!!
Join us for an evening of Bingo fun hosted in the gallery, where the Holiday Bazaar is currently on display!!

Entry is $5 General public, $3 WomanKraft members.
With your entry price you get your 1st Bingo card. Additional cards are $1 each!

Traditionally some bingo games have one big prize jackpot, but we are looking to spread the win! We will be playing multiple rounds of bingo with multiple winners.
Prizes include plants, art, delicious homemade treats… and more!

Come try your luck, in a relaxed, fun and art-filled atmosphere. Enjoy an evening where you can help support your favorite non-profit! We can’t guarantee you a win, but we can guarantee you a good time! Refreshments will be served.

 

We also call this day, GREEN FRIDAY, as we offer a 10% discount on all purchases (of local art! of classes and workshops!!) when you bring in 2 or more cans of non-perishable food goods to be donated to the Tucson Community Food Bank. Help us to contribute to those in need, and extend your contribution to local non-profit organizations as well as the local artists in the current exhibit.

Castle BIRTHDAY PARTY!

It’s our birthday!
We’re inviting folks to come and celebrate a lot of great things. First and foremost, we’ve paid the mortgage in full. Yes, WomanKraft holds the deed to our lovely castle, and we should all be so proud because nothing as amazing as this place happens because of one or two people alone.
 
It’s the whole that made this organization what it is today. The ups and downs and everything in between. The one dollar contribution to the tens of thousands, the one art purchase to collectors who frequent us, the one workshop attendee to our regulars. It’s all of us, so be proud!
 
WomanKraft’s annual birthday is always celebrated on our first Saturday December reception and this year marks our 44th year as a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization!
 
This December also celebrates our 26th year here on Stone Avenue, in what we lovingly refer to as ‘the Castle’. Speaking of, this beautiful Queen Ann Victorian building is turning 100 years old.
 
This special Saturday The Castle will be an “open house” and folks will get a chance to see the whole building, even upstairs! We’ve got a lot to be thankful for and a lot to celebrate.
 
Join us Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 from 1pm till 5pm.
7-10pm is our second reception.
There will be drinks and snacks all day, our reception spread (and birthday cake! ) from 7-10pm.
Bring a gift for the castle if you can, but no matter what….join us!

A talented photographer, she studied with Jack Welpott in San Francisco and Lou Bernal in Tucson, participating in solo and group shows in Arizona and the Bay Area, including a solo show “Total Immersion” at the UA in 1976, She served as media coordinator for the Tucson Rape Crisis Center and the Tucson Center for Women and Children, also serving as photo-documentation technician for the Community Artists Project. She coordinated several film festivals including one for the Tucson Women’s Cable Consortium. For many years she worked at Casa Video, sharing her love and knowledge of film.

Wyatt was an animal rights activist and worked on several political campaigns including those of Meredith Little, Carmine Cardamone, and John Kromko.

WomanKraft will include a selection of Wyatt’s images in the June/July/ exhibit ‘Black and White and Shades of Grey’ .

A celebration of her life will be held at WomanKraft on Sunday, July 9 from 1- 4pm. There will be an open mic for friends to share adventures with Wyatt and a selection of her favorite snacks and beverages together with a chance to view more of her images.
