An art show benefiting Blanchet House and artists.
The Emerging Professionals Board serves to diversify the community that supports Blanchet House’s mission through education, community engagement, and access. As COVID-19 continues shaking our world, we want to highlight the devastating problems of food insecurity and housing instability through art shared in an online art show. The theme for this year’s event is “Building Community in Isolation.” Sales open on August 1, 2021.

On The Ledge is an online art show of curated prints designed by local artists. Your purchase supports the artists and the essential services provided by Blanchet House.
About the Event
Originally intended to be a traditional art show and fundraiser, On The Ledge has pivoted to an online event. We recognize the creative community has also been hit hard by this pandemic, and are excited about the ability to support both Blanchet House and artists.
We’re all painfully aware of the dire personal situation the pandemic has created for so many around the world, but it’s sometimes more difficult to find ways to address this pain and struggle going on in our community; it can all be so overwhelming. Blanchet provides many opportunities to engage with the community in need and enables us all to be a part of the solution to a growing problem. Find ways to get involved here.
All proceeds from this event will be split 50/50 between the artists and Blanchet House.
