Secret Art Sale January 25-27, 2019
UNLOCK THE SECRET!
The Frank Bette Center for the Arts is holding the Third Annual Secret Art Sale from January 25-27, 2019. (January 25th • 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm, January 26th 11:00 am to 7:00 am and 27th, 11:00 am to 2:00 pm), a fundraiser benefitting the Frank Bette Center of the Arts and participating Alameda school. It is modeled after the Springs Mystery Art Sale in East Hampton, NY, where students and professional artists and designers created postcard-sized artworks to be exhibited and sold anonymously for the same small price.
Artists and Alameda school students are invited to contribute a piece of 5”x7” art to be exhibited at The South Shore Center from January 25 to 27, 2019. All the artwork must be signed ONLY on the back to keep the artists’ identity a secret. The artwork will be displayed and sold for $20 each throughout the show. The “secret” will be revealed at the end of the exhibition when the art collectors discover whether they have invested in a valuable piece of art from a well-known artist or celebrity or a masterpiece from a talented student artist.
We hope you will be generous in donating an art piece to the Frank Bette Secret Art Sale and/or attending the exhibit and purchasing Art. All proceeds will be split between the Frank Bette Center for the Arts and proportionally among the participating Alameda schools.
The event will take place at The South Shore Center(specific location TBD)
