The event begins with an exhibition and then the auction starts at 12 p.m. Bids will begin at $100, according to a press release.
At the auction, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy music, local and emerging artists, food and drinks while making a positive impact as proceeds from this charity auction will be split 50/50 between the local artists and Gateway Academy, a nonprofit school serving students with high-functioning autism.
“With the support of Artlink and Larsen Gallery, The Art for Autism Charity Auction is going to be a fantastic event filled with art, music, food and more. All while increasing exposure for local Arizona artists and providing much needed support to our incredible students here at Gateway Academy,” CEO and Executive Director at Gateway Academy O. Robin Sweet said in the release.
For this special auction, Larsen Gallery will also donate 25 works of art for the auction and give 100% of the proceeds to Gateway Academy.
“Gateway Academy is serving an incredible purpose here in the community by giving students with high-functioning autism a place to belong and a safe place to go to school. We are absolutely honored to help them raise some valuable funds for their school and we hope everyone will join us at the gallery on May 20 for a very special auction,” Owner Scott Larsen said in the release.
A call to artists is being facilitated by Artlink, which is also inviting artists from throughout Arizona to participate. Artists interested in participating should visit artlinkphx.org for details.
