Fundraiser Opening Night for HCB2 - Dazzling Denim! Yesterday's Jeans, Today's Art, Tomorrow's Cure
Bring out the gang-this is one serious fundraiser with the accent on "fun!"
On Friday evening, May 16, original art from over 250 artists will be surrounded by live music, food, beer and wine in Crossroads Art Center's 25,000 square-foot arts facility. Crossroads will also host "Dazzling Denim!", a fundraiser for Hitting Cancer Below the Belt (HCB2), a nonprofit dedicated to the prevention of colorectal cancer. Why denim jeans? They're meant to symbolize both jeans and genes, to raise awareness that family genes can pass colon cancer from generation to generation. Knowing your family medical history is a major component of colorectal cancer awareness. Proceeds from the sale of the denim jean art will benefit local prevention education, screenings, and research. For more information about Hitting Cancer Below the Belt or to make a donation, please visit HCB2.org.
In Addition, the featured artists will be David Tanner and Flynn Geissel, as well as artists participating in the Central Region of the Virginia Art Education Association(CRVAEA), the Juried May "All Media Show" and May's Member Show
There will also be a Silent Auction & Book Signing Opening Night to Raise Funds for HCB2
Flynn Geissel will be hosting a silent auction with her Exhibition Title: Flowers and Waterfalls. A percentage of the auction sales will go to HCB2. Come by Opening Night to bid on the pieces.
Recent Work by David Tanner focuses on figures in interiors, many of which were done in direct collaboration with performers from the Richmond theater community. Additional oils of landscapes, portraits, & still-life round out this twenty-picture exhibition of paintings completed since May of 2013.
