Oil Baron's Ball

Dear Friends of Carroll County Arts:

Our 2nd annual “Oil Baron’s Ball” will be held April 12 at Atwood Lake Lodge. The Bob Hall Quintet is booked for the Ball and their keyboardist will play at the Patron Party.

Here is how you can help... Please consider donating an auction item for our silent auction. We know there are many talented people out there; we have seen your work. If you are not an artist, that is ok. We will accept items with a value of $50 or more.  Click here for the list of donated items. They are just beginning to come in.

If you are interested in donating or would like to volunteer, please call the Art Center at  330-627-3739

Carroll County Arts strives to exhibit, educate and inspire creativity, imagination, and an appreciation for the arts.
