175 Artists, One Night Only! One Night Stand on August 24th
Support environmental education and the arts at this year’s One Night Stand fundraiser for Art From Scrap, a program of Explore Ecology. With art from over 170 artists, food, live music from Sidewalk Affair and a silent auction this year’s One Night Stand promises to deliver a wonderful time for all.
What people seem to like most about One Night Stand is the element of mystery and surprise. None of the art is labeled. The artist signs their name on the back of their piece; their name is only revealed after their art is sold.
Many of the artists who donate to One Night Stand also attend the event. “Last year, I had no idea whose art I had purchased until after I bought it.” explained Mary Price. “I only knew that I loved the piece. It was exciting to find out who the artist was and to be able to support Art From Scrap through my purchase.”
Phoebe Brunner said, “It’s very exciting and a one of a kind event full of surprises. As an artist who does not typically paint small, this is a challenge and a real treat to see what appears. Lots of little gems in this show. Last year, we purchased a lovely woodblock from an L.A. artist unknown to me. Now it’s one of my favorite things.”
Dan Levin is “grateful to be included in this varied and talented group of artists… banding together for a worthy cause as it were.”
One Night Stand is Explore Ecology’s major fundraiser and is a wonderful and direct way for people to support the Art From Scrap program.
