DESCRIPTION

Varnish Fine Art and their artists---Jennybird Alcantara, Isabel Samaras, Ransom&Mitchell, and Chuck Sperry---are proud supporters of Visual Aid and their mission to encourage artists with life-threatening illnesses to continue their work. The gallery presents a unique exhibit of contemporary artwork for this event, and one quarter of all art sales will be donated to Visual Aid, a San Francisco organization founded in 1989 by a group of passionately concerned artists, collectors and art dealers to serve artists affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Today, Visual Aid supports the creative work of artists whose careers are challenged because of any life-threatening illness. Along with exhibitions in the Visual Aid Gallery and corporate spaces, Visual Aid provides grants, free art supplies and community to artists in need.

VIP Reception for Varnish Fine Artists Benefit Visual Aid: Thurs Aug 16 6-9pm
