The JACK DORSEY “RAISE THE ROOF” SILENT ART AUCTION fund raiser is off to a great start with a $15,000 matching grant pledge. A person will match whatever is raised through the silent art auction of Jack Dorsey’s paintings up to $15,000.

The money raised will go towards replacing Jack and Ann’s cedar shake roof with either a metal or composite roof. We estimate the cost of this roof replacement to be approximately $30,000 [we’re waiting on the bid itself]. This matching grants makes hitting our $30,000 target seem more feasible, especially when Jack Dorsey’s original artwork will be starting at such amazing prices!

GREAT PRICES on Jack Dorsey originals

Jack Dorsey’s original paintings typically sell for over $1,000. But one time only, for this silent auction, you have the chance to purchase his beautiful watercolors and original oils for much less. In fact, some of the paintings that will for sale during the silent auction start for as little as $50. In fact, many of the frames cost more than where the paintings are starting!

You will discover the full range of Jack Dorsey’s art legacy:

  • Stanwood/Camano/Northwest scenes
  • Cascade Mountains and eastern Washington scenes
  • Western themed paintings
  • Paintings of golf legends
  • Symbolic/Abstract religious
  • And more

Great Reception: BBQ and Bluegrass concert featuring the Day Brothers

To celebrate Jack Dorsey’s art legacy and to raise money to “raise the roof” Sunnyshore Studio is hosting a “first come, first served” BBQ dinner and bluegrass concert on Saturday, June 22, 5:00-7:00pm. We’re planning to have enough BBQ for the first 100 people, after that pickings might be slim.

We’re thrilled to have Jack’s nephews, the Day Brothers, putting on a free Bluegrass concert for Jack’s family, friends, collectors and supporters. The concert will begin at 6:00pm.

The Day Brothers, David from Portland, OR, Daniel from Vinita, OK, and John from Longbranch, WA love singing songs that are rooted in Bluegrass, Country, Southern Gospel and Americana genres.  Having grown up in the Stanwood/Camano Island/Mount Vernon regions, all 3 of the brothers have written songs that were formed by events in life – so you will find songs from our region in their repertoire.  “Stillaguamish River Waltz”, “Lover’s Lane”, “Gonna Come Sweeping Through” are examples of their lyrical mastery meeting engaging melodies that help make a concert by The Day Brothers a wonderful experience. 

They are passionate about their music, and you will enjoy the repartee and musical intensity that the brothers bring to each concert. Their 2019 summer concert tour of the Pacific NW will feature 3 different guest musicians to augment the  guitar, mandolin and upright bass provided by the brothers.  Reed Stutz is an accomplished musician attending Berklee College of music, and he will be playing guitar and mandolin.  An amazing Banjo player Seth Wiggins from Portland, Oregon will be traveling with the Day Brothers in the first half of the tour.  The second half of the tour will feature Josey Toney, an amazing fiddler who is also a student at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston.  For dates and locations of the 2019 summer tour, or to purchase CDs , go to www.TheDayBrothers.com

Great Cause: Replacing Jack and Ann Dorsey’s Cedar Shake Roof

Money raised through the silent art auction goes to a great cause: replacing Jack and Ann Dorsey’s cedar shake roof. This roof was installed in 1984 by Jack Dorsey with the help of his kids and their cousins (and a few friends).
