Experiencing Tosca Events
Experiencing TOSCA is an education/events organization dedicated to providing arts activities that feature Theatre, Opera, Shakespeare, Culture and Art in a format that is entertaining, educational, sometimes silly and always memorable. Enjoyed equally by the expert, the aficionado and the novice, these events combine entertainment, socializing and fun.
Arts & Tarts | February 24, 2018, 11am-5pm
Arts & Tarts (For Generous Hearts) will be hosted by Twin Cities TOSCA at the Dow Art Gallery (2242 University Ave. W., Saint Paul, MN). If you love pie and art, join us for coffee and dessert and shopping for art and gifts to help us raise money for Urban Ventures. A percentage of net proceeds will be donated to Urban Ventures which works to educate kids, strengthen their families, and build a healthy community in South Minneapolis.
Instead of a huge vendor event, this is a fun-filled cozy soiree with a small number of artisans and artists who are hand-selected for the quality and unique nature of their work. Participating artists are:
- Mary Bacon, oil painting
- Lisa Fertig, collage
- Josephine A. Geiger, fine art stained glass
- K. Daphnae Koop, mixed media
