Big Draw Slated for May 7; Works for Bid Online and On View in Main Gallery â€“ Miami Beach
ArtCenter/South Florida launches the 9th Annual Winning Art! benefit raffle. The opening reception slated for Saturday, April 9, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at 800 Lincoln Road will showcase contemporary works up for bid by forty of ArtCenterâ€™s artists-in-residence. In the wake of damages caused by a recent fire in artist Nina Surelâ€™s space, also affecting Alex Heria and Natasha Duwinâ€™s studios, the non-profit gallery is counting on this yearâ€™s event to rally renewed support for its artists and programs.
At a humble $10 per raffle ticket, patrons will have the opportunity to bid on their choice piece, donated by an established or emerging professional resident artist. The math is simple: the more tickets purchased, the higher the odds of winning. With works currently on view at www.artcentersf.org and at the gallery from April 8 until May 8, the big draw will take place on Saturday, May 7 at 7:00 p.m. in the main gallery. Admission to the raffle event is $20 or free for ArtCenter members (raffle ticket costs additional).
