If the turn out for the “Meet the Artist” event last night was any indictor, tonight’s Gala Auction should be a rip-roaring success! Proceeds benefit the Pacific Art League and the Woman’s Club of Palo Alto so bid high and often! It’s not too late to get tickets at the door -475 Homer Ave, 6-9 pm! I’ve linked artist’s websites to their names where applicable.
The Woman’s Club of Palo Alto is in an impressive, historic Arts and Crafts building. Here, the beautiful ballroom was filled the painted chairs of over 100 local artists being previewed for the auction.
Dressed to match my chair, people could easily identify me as the artist responsible for Rose Vanitas.
