Annual 5x5 Art Sale to benefit Rising Star Riders

Rising Star Riders (RSR), in conjunction with the Tehachapi Arts Center, presents the annual 5x5 Art Show and Sale on May 3, (the First Friday of May), from 5:55 to 7:55 p.m. All art-sized 5x5 will be sold for $55.55. All sales proceeds and donations are contributed to the Rising Star Riders Foundation. Rising Star Riders is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the needs of children and adults with physical and/or emotional challenges. The organization offers horseback riding, therapeutic horseback riding, horse management lessons and mental health services to our community.

This annual event raises money for the Rising Star Riders Foundation to support its mission and provides local artists with a chance to display their talents. The event also allows supporters of the foundation to purchase quality artwork at an affordable price. We invite everyone to participate in this event.
