Gifts of Art
If you’re interested in the work of emerging artists, a benefit being held at the National Arts Club is the place to be on September 9th. At the Gifts of Art exhibit, 21 artists, who study at the Art Students League in New York City will be selling their watercolor, acrylic and oil paintings to benefit the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Attendees may also enter in a grand raffle and silent auction with more than 60 prizes donated by NYC wineries, restaurants, health professionals, celebrity chefs, Broadway theaters, fitness centers and more. This fundraising event is in memory of Laura Burdick Sherman, who passed away from breast cancer last year.
Stacey Sager, from ABC-TV will be making a special appearance. Admission is free.
As one of the 21 featured artists and having had breast cancer myself, I have a personal stake in this exhibit. Both of my two included paintings were created while I was recovering from cancer and waiting for my hair to grow back and both remind me of how precious life is.
At the National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South @20 St.
Friday, September 9 from 6-10 pm
Hope you can make it.
