The Kane Schools Foundation for Students is excited to announce internationally known artist Roland Lee has donated one of his original watercolor paintings to the foundation for its upcoming auction, “Diamonds & Denim.”  

A graduate of Brigham Young University with over 30 years experience, Lee is a prolific and talented painter, who also generously shares his skills by teaching. He has exhibited and won awards in over 50 invitational-juried shows, and his original works can be found in over 1000 public and private collections worldwide.  Lee won the People’s Choice Award at the Zion Plein Air Invitational in November of 2014, at which the donated watercolor painting “Sentinel from the Court“ was painted.  

The Foundation is also pleased to have received a donation of an original pastel, “Twilight,” by another Utah artist, Chris Cook of Holladay. 

“Diamonds & Denim,” will be held on Saturday, March 14, 2015, at Kanab Middle School, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.   A homemade spaghetti dinner will be served, with a Dutch oven dessert. Admission is $15 per person, or $25 per couple. Duke Cox will be the auctioneer for this classy evening of homegrown fun.  

Other auction items include a half day canyoneering trip from Red Desert Adventures, “Day at the Museum” packages from the Natural History Museum of Utah, a two night stay at Zion Lodge, Brian Head Lift tickets, a Casablanca stay in Mesquite with Golf or Spa, gift certificates, power tools children’s gift baskets and much more.

We are seeking donations, volunteers, and attendees. Proceeds from the live and silent auction will benefit students primarily through the Foundation’s classroom grant program.
