The Sixth Annual Gala, sponsored by HPAAC, will feature delicious food, music, a live and silent auction, and the opportunity to meet with local artists and help support the Arts!

During this year's gala, HPAAC will honor three area residents for their efforts and contributions to the local arts in Hastings and Prescott.

You will also be able to see and bid on the completed En Plein Air Paintings created in Hastings and Prescott.

If you would like to donate to the live or silent auctions, please send us an email to hastingsprescottarts @gmail.com

Now in its 9th year, the mission of HPAAC is to foster the arts in the community. To accomplish this mission, HPAAC funds activities such as the Art in the Park, Black Dirt Theater, a monthly writers workshop, music programs in the schools and free weekly art lessons for adults.

HPAAC has also been instrumental in bringing a new Artspace building to Hastings. This completed building provides 37 affordable live-work spaces for artists as well as community and commercial space in downtown Hastings.

Gala Game!

Head or Tails!
head or tails gameOn Gala night one lucky player will win a cash jackpot in the game of Heads or Tails. The “Heads or Tails” game is a 50/50 raffle with a potential grand prize of $599.99. The more strands of beads purchased the larger the prize and the more strands you purchase the better the odds you will be our winner!

Bead sellers will be strolling the Gala hall from 6 until the start of the live auction and beads are $10 a strand or three (3) for $25. Each player may purchase a maximum of three (3) strands. This simple and fun game has participants standing and placing their hands on either their head or their “tail.” A coin is flipped and, if it lands on head, all the tails need to give up a strand of beads or sit down when they have used their final chance. The last player standing is the winner.
