Art From The Heart 2015
Saturday, January 31, 2015
SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, January 31, 2015, marks the date for the 31st annual Art from the Heart silent art auction and party at the University Art Gallery, Sonoma State University, from 6 to 9 p.m. Proceeds from the auction directly benefit the Art Gallery's exhibition, publication, and lecture programs. There will be a free preview of the artwork on Wednesday, January 28, 11:00-8:00; Thursday, January 29, 11:00-4:00; and Friday, January 30, 11:00 a.m. -8:00 p.m. As always, the Art from the Heart auction will be an exciting evening of art, food, fine wine, and music that has become one of the oldest continually-held fundraising events in the area and a “must” for novice and seasoned collectors alike (Dave Getz Jazz Trio will perform this year).
Art from the Heart features modestly priced works of art that are sold during a silent auction. It’s a wonderful way to have a good time, support the Gallery (and in turn, the careers of worthy artists), and go home with an original work of art. This year more than 130 artists from Sonoma County and across the United States have created original works of art especially for Art from the Heart, including Adela Akers, Sally Baker, Todd Barricklow, Ray Beldner, Mary Black, Nuala Creed, Lowell Darling, Kevin Glen Fletcher, Mineko Grimmer, Cynthia Hipkiss, Robert Hudson, Joe Jaqua, Kurt Kemp, Tony King, Hung Liu, Michele Morehouse, Bob Nugent, Mark Perlman, Frank Ryan, Cornelia Schulz, Sylvia Seventy, Richard Shaw, Jack Stuppin, William Smith, Jennifer Sturgill, Shane Weare, Ann Weber, and Bill Wheeler, among many others.
