Sisters Folk Festival is seeking nominations for their 2022 Ben Westlund Advocate for the Arts Award. This award is given to the artist, organization, or person who consistently supports, promotes, and perpetuates cultural expression and engagement, seeks to inspire artistic endeavors in others, and advocates for building on the arts economy and thriving arts scene in the Central Oregon region.
If you know a person or organization that fits this description, you can fill out a short nomination form online at https://tinyurl.com/BenWestlundAward. The deadline for consideration is March 14 at 5 p.m.
All of this year’s My Own Two Hands (MOTH) awards will be presented at the April 30 MOTH Art Auction & Party taking place at the Sisters Art Works venue under a large tent. Tickets to the evening’s celebration are $90 and include a catered dinner, drinks, and live music from the Seattle-based True Loves band. All of the fabulous donated works of art will be on display and available for bidding. The exciting art auction will wrap up that night, and the lucky high bidders will be able to take their new art home with them.
The MOTH Art Auction & Party is one of Sisters’ most anticipated social events of the year, and it’s back in 2022 after a two-year COVID hiatus. Ticket are limited and can be purchased at https://sffmoth2022.ggo.bid, or by calling 541-588-7065.
