Get ready for the Secret Art Sale
We will soon begin soliciting pieces of 5 x 7 art (paintings, photographs, etc.) from a mix of students, Alameda celebrities and distinguished Artists. The pieces of art will be displayed anonymously (names will be on back) and sold throughout the show. The secret will be revealed at the end of the exhibition where the buyers (children, parents, artists, and serious collectors) will discover whether they have invested in a valuable piece of art from a well known artist or celebrity or a potential masterpiece from a student artist. This fundraiser will benefit the participating Alameda schools and the Frank Bette Art Center for Arts.
For those of you who participated in our First Annual Secret Art Sale in January, I do hope you will commit to this fun event again! To those of you who did not participate last year, please consider joining in the fun and raising money for Alameda School art programs. Last year we were able to raise funds for 11 participating Alameda schools!
Many thanks to all who attended and these wonderful donors who contributed to our silent auction at the Frank Bette Center for the Arts Grand Reopening & Fundraiser
