19th Annual ArtSpan Art Auction - Tickets on Sale Now

Saturday, March 29, 2014, 5:30pm-10:00pm PST; Proceeds Directly Benefit All of ArtSpan's Programs, Including Art for City Youth and SF Open Studios

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/13/14 -- ArtSpan, a San Francisco non-profit organization supporting artists throughout the Bay Area, is hosting the nineteenth annual Art Auction on Saturday, March 29, 2014 with proceeds funding its art programs and community outreach. The annual fundraiser, featuring three silent sections and one live auction, will showcase over 100 pieces of artwork in multiple mediums and styles from emerging and established Bay Area artists.

Attendees can expect to find art hand-picked by design professionals from the Bay Area and beyond giving long-time art patrons and new collectors an opportunity to view and purchase original pieces while contributing back to San Francisco's creative community. Cocktails and wine will be accompanied by delicious hors d'oeuvres and light faire provided by Macadamia Events and Catering of San Francisco.

Other donated gift packages will also be available for purchase, courtesy of local restaurants and businesses, including a welding class with SF Open Studios artist Rebecca Fox, a personalized tour of artist studios, tickets to the San Francisco Ballet, a limited edition football from the San Francisco 49ers, a Blue and Gold Fleet Bay Cruise, and more!

Proceeds from the event directly benefit the nonprofit's youth programs, which provide arts education to 600 under-served youth in San Francisco at no expense to the school or students' families, in addition to benefiting over 800 working artists who participate in SF Open Studios and ArtSpan's professional development workshops, and over 60,000 members of the public who attend SF Open Studios and ArtSpan's exhibitions.

"When I moved to San Francisco in the early 80's, ArtSpan provided a door to the larger community," says SF Open Studios Artist Amy Trachtenberg. "By inviting the public into my studio, SF Open Studios allowed for a wide range of exchange that included invaluable conversation and connections to other artists. With the influx of friends and strangers, Open Studios helped to open the door to shows, sales and a rich range of arts activity in the Bay Area."

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.
