The 17th annual Art for Life returns this month in support of Friends for Life. The evening involves a live art auction of pieces contributed by over 30 local artists.
Friends For Life provides over 1,800 life-affirming appointments each month to more than 1,700 members with life-threatening illness as well as support to their families and caregivers. Our more than 50 programs and services are designed to promote healing while lessening anxiety, isolation, and the need for institutional support.
The estimated value of the live auction pieces ranges from $2,500 – $15,000, however only two paintings have reserve minimums. This means that if you attend this event, you could walk away with a fantastic piece of local artwork not only for a great price, but in support of a great cause. You can preview all of the works online by clicking on an artist’s name in the list.
Aside from the auction, Art for Life will have live music, a raffle, dancing, and refreshments. I’ve been told that this is more than just an art auction, it’s a fantastic party.
Taking place at the Five Sixty Club on Seymour, tickets start at $50 (for auction and dessert reception) and $125 (for admission and VIP reception pre-auction). You can also donate to Friends for Life separately, should you be unable to attend.
If you would like to take part in Art for Life, I have a pair of tickets available to give away (value $100). Here’s how you can enter to win:
I will draw one winner at random from all entries on November 9th at 12:00pm.
Update The winner is Barb – Have fun at the event!
