Luck of the Draw 2015 is Coming!

Get ready for SCAL's most popular annual fundraising event that attracts passionate collectors who enjoy spirited competition for art. Luck of the Draw is an art drawing with a twist! Here's how it works:

Everyone with a ticket will join us in the gallery, where, one by one, each ticket number is drawn at random by our MC. As each person's ticket is drawn they get to choose a piece from all the remaining artwork. No one leaves without receiving a piece of original art worth twice the price of their ticket!

  • Artwork Preview Show: November 21 - December 6
  • Ticket Drawing Event: December 6, 2:45pm SHARP!
  • Ticket Price $65
Visit and Like our Facebook page to view the artwork and get the most current updates as we head toward the big day!

Artists submitting pieces should check out our Exhibit Schedule and Entry Information page for details.
