CALL FOR ARTISTS: The Big Give 2018!


A weekend event that showcases 3 art galleries in 3 local communities for 3 charities

Panza Gallery in Millvale, .5 Gallery in Etna and Ketchup City Creative in Sharpsburg are working together to bridge the 3 communities on the same weekend and what better way to do it than with art and music! Each gallery has selected a charity to raise money for during the weekend of November 30, December 1, & December 2, 2018. Charities include North Hills Community Outreach, Pushin’ for a Purpose, and Backpack for Hunger-Fox Chapel.
