On May 2 and 3, 10 student artists at Keystone College donated their talents and time to a fundraiser for The Gathering Place.
Students drew, charcoaled, and painted works around the idea of gathering over a twenty-four hour period. Student organizers Rainey Pritchett and Melanie Rosato developed the idea in hopes that the Draw-a-Thon becomes an annual event sponsored by The Keystone Art Society.
And The Winner is …
