Rose Center Council for the Arts in Morristown hosted a new fundraiser on Thursday.

“A Midsummer Social” featured donated works of art created by members of the Morristown Art Association, along with live entertainment by the ensemble Cool Breeze Jazz, a silent auction, food and adult beverages.

Ticket holders were paired with works of art and provided with opportunities to trade with other attendees during the two-hour event.

MAA artists were on hand to discuss their inspirations for the art pieces, a number of which were based on East Tennessee scenery.

The evening’s activities were sponsored by Community Bank, MAA, Rose Center and the Tennessee Arts Commission.
