28th annual Art from the Heart auction to benefit the University Art Gallery at SSU:

Saturday, January 21, 6-9 pm; Free Preview exhibition: Wednesday, January 18, 11-8; Thursday, January 19, 11-4; and Friday, January 20, 11-8.

Art from the Heart features modestly priced works of art that are sold during a silent auction. It’s a wonderful way to have a good time, support the Gallery (and in turn, the careers of worthy artists), and go home with an original work of art.

As always, the Art from the Heart auction will be an exciting evening of art, food, fine wine, and music that has become one of the oldest continually-held fundraising events in the area and a “must” for novice and seasoned collectors alike (Dave Getz Jazz Trio will perform this year). This year more than 150 artists from Sonoma County and across the United States have created original works of art especially for Art from the Heart, including Sally Baker, Todd Barricklow, Janice Best, Ray Beldner, Joe Biel, Mary Black, John Casey, Nuala Creed, Kevin G. Fletcher, Cynthia Hipkiss, Bob Hudson, Karen Kelly, Kurt Kemp, Tony King, Judith Linhares, William O’Keeffe, Mark Perlman, Sylvia Seventy, Richard Shaw, Tony Speirs, Jack Stuppin, Jennifer Sturgill, Masami Teraoka, Ray Turner, Shane Weare, Bill Wheeler, and Wil Smith, among many others.

Delicious food and wine will be served, and tickets are $30 suggested donation. For more information, please call the University Art Gallery at (707) 664-2295.
