Market of Choice supports Arts Alliance through art bag sales
Market of Choice has gifted $1,500 to Clackamas County Arts Alliance in an effort to support local artists and promote the use of reusable shopping bags.
The funds, raised in 2014, come from the sale of 100 percent, recyclable, non-woven polypropylene, reusable bags that feature the work of Oregon artists.
For each bag sold, $1.50 goes to local arts organizations. The third bag in the series will be released this month and will feature artist Blenda Tyvoll of Beavercreek, Ore.
We are excited to support Clackamas County Art Alliance and its mission to promote access to arts and culture, but we couldnt do it without our customers participation, said Rick Wright, president of Market of Choice.
Tyvoll sees trees as a metaphor for family, love and freedom. Surrounded by inspiration on her 57-acre free farm, she celebrates those magical days when her paintbrush seems to take on a life of its own.
I like to scrape, add layers, glaze and stamp surfaces to achieve a unique texture or color, she said.
The distribution of funds is based on the number of bags sold in each community. Clackamas County Arts Alliance is one of four organizations to benefit from the bag sales.
