Every year at about this time the Board of The Will Flores Fund reaches out to our local artists and ask for donations of their work to our annual Show & Sale. We are asking you to donate small pieces of original art that we can price from $30 to $450. There’s no limit to the kind of art we’d like to have: paintings, fabric, mosaic, photographs, ceramics and sculpture- things that brought joy to you in their creation and will bring joy to their buyers.
Those of you familiar with The Will Flores Fund know that we hold the Show & Sale in the fall. This year it’s on Sunday, September 18, and we mount the donated art in the gallery-like setting of the William F. Kerr building, a beautiful historic LEEDS-restored former sugar factory located at 21 O’Fallon Street near the riverfront. We have a party, with wine & beer, hors d’oeuvres, activities for the kids, and music and we have a grand time. And then the Board members have an even better time giving away our sales proceeds to deserving charitable organizations for whom a $200 or $1,500 grant makes all the difference in the world.
OUR DEADLINE FOR DONATING THE ART IS SEPTEMBER 10. Contact Kim Sindel at firstname.lastname@example.org to join the artists’ team and arrange for pick-up of art.
