I am thrilled to curate an upcoming art show and benefit fundraiser at Vox Sacramento Gallery! The "Bent Twig" art show's opening reception will be held on Saturday, September 10, 2011 from 5-9pm.
The Bent Twig art show will feature a family tree of artists helping artists - an event in which established artists are coupled with emerging artists to display their work side by side. Major and established artists from the Sacramento area are invited to participate in this art show by selecting a newer or relatively unknown artist (their "Bent Twig") to partner with and hang hanging their art next to during the run of the show, thus creating a family tree of support in the local art scene.
Also, during the evening's art show, a silent auction fundraiser will be held to benefit Vox Sacramento. As you may know, Vox just moved into their own space, so expect lots of great things to come there! Please also consider donating art work for the night’s silent auction items.
As some of you may recall, the Bent Twig art show was first held to support Danny Madsen, who a year ago lost his battle with Leukemia. Danny was such a huge supporter of the Sacramento art scene, so it is an honor to continue this art show in his name. Plans are already under way to have the Sacramento BloodSource on hand to host a mobile blood and bone marrow drive during the art show’s opening reception.
If you are interested in participating in the Bent Twig art show and the Vox fundraiser, please let me know.
