Black And White Party/Art Auction Set for April 1st

A Black and White Party and art auction will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 1, at the Ponca City Art Center, at the historic Soldani Mansion at 819 E. Central in Ponca City.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Ponca City Art Center. The party is themed, and guests are encouraged to wear black and white cocktail attire. Tuxedos are not required. For men, dress shirts, black slacks with a tie or suits are acceptable. Women are encouraged to wear cocktail dresses.
The Ponca City Art Center is dedicated to enriching the cultural life in Ponca City by promoting, teaching, and nourishing the creation and appreciation of the visual arts.
Chris and Susan Jennings offered to host this year’s fundraiser at the Ponca City Art Center. There will be live music, artistic entertainment, along with an open bar and hors d’oeuvres. An art auction is scheduled for 8 p.m.

Local artists created custom works specifically for this event. Participating artists for this year’s party include Carlene Wallace, Gene Doughtery, Cletus Smith, Tommy Lee Ball, Katherine Spena, Jason Wilson, and Ken Crowder. In addition to these artists’ custom work, there will be two sought after prints, one from Peter Hay, a Ponca City native, and likely the most sought after piece will be a print from the late Maxine Warren.

Tickets are still available for $50 each and can be purchased at any Eastman National Bank location or at the Ponca City Art Center at 819 East Central.
