About 100 artists have created artworks as personal gifts to encourage donations to three organizations. Sound good? Here are the details:
Juan Alonso Studio & Project 106 at the TK Building are hosting a fundraising event benefitting ACLU, Lambda Legal & Planned Parenthood.
We have supplied about 100 local artists with 6” x 6” pieces of Masonite and asked them to create an original work for you to choose from once you donate a minimum of $100.
1. We will have iPads and laptops set up at the entrances to the studio, ready for you to make your donation to one of these three organizations on line. You may also bring a check made out to one of the three.
2. You get a receipt which you take into Juan Alonso Studio and select an original work of art to take home as a gift from the artist.
3. All works are signed on the back so guests are choosing the work and not the artist by name. Once you choose the work, you can see who created it. Yes, there is a mix of emerging and very well-known artists contributing.
Reception – 21 & over:
Friday, April 28, 5-8 pm
$100 minimum donation required at the door guarantees you get to select an original artwork to take home. You do not have to pay if you’re a donating artist.
Juan Alonso Studio – 306 S Washington St, Seattle, WA 98104
Refreshments will be served.
2nd Chance – all ages
Saturday, April 29, 11 am. – 3 pm. - $5 donation requested at the door
Donate a minimum of $100 and you get to take an original artwork home.
Juan Alonso Studio will also donate 25% of sales of original works by Juan Alonso-Rodriguez’s to whichever one of the three organizations you choose.
Please bring your friends!
For the last 10 years, I have celebrated by birthday by raising funds for a non-profit organization. In order to make this a more community-engaging event, I joined forces with Paul D McKee of Project 106 and invited interested PNW artists to contribute if they wanted to. I am deeply touched by the generosity of my fellow artist. I hope you will come and show your support for all of us and for the organizations that could use it as well.
Hope to see you Friday the 28th or Saturday the 29th
