Beverly Shores to Hold Online Fundraiser
The Beverly Shores Depot  Museum and Art Gallery will host its annual season opener and fundraiser online. 5x5 at the Depot—Digital Edition will be held Friday, May 8th, beginning at 5pm (CST). Local and regional artists donate work that measures 5” x 5” to the Depot, and each piece priced at $55. Proceeds from the event help support ongoing programming for the 501©3 non-profit organization.

5x5 at the Depot is in its 3rd year. Under normal circumstances, it is held at the historic Depot in Beverly Shores. But because a face-to-face gathering is not possible at this time, Caryn Brown, Gallery Director, and glass artist, said, “We wanted the show to go on, but needed to think outside the box for a way to hold the event responsibly. To learn more, people can visit, where we have published a comprehensive list of answers to Frequently Asked Questions.”

At 5pm on May 8th, people will be able to go to and view the gallery of work. Brown added, “We have more than 100 artworks in a variety of media donated by 50+ artists. Once a visitor has made a selection, they can put the item in their shopping cart, but it does not become theirs until they pay for it at checkout using a credit or debit card (or another method of electronic payment). People living in the area may pick up their purchases curbside at the Depot (525 S. Broadway, Beverly Shores) Friday, June 12th, from 5-7pm or Saturday, June 13th, from 12-2pm. For those outside the area, the purchase can be shipped for a discounted postage fee of $5 (for the entire order, whether it’s one 5x5 or several). The shipping fee is added to the purchase price at checkout. Brown said, “There are no exchanges or refunds, and competition for art can be fierce, so the best way to ensure you get the item you want is to put it in your shopping cart and go directly to checkout
