Call for Artwork Donations

Benefit for Kelly Moody
A silent art auction

Tangent Lab – art gallery
Friday December 4, 2009
7:00 p.m. – 10 p.m.

This is an open request for art donations to be included in a silent auction to benefit Kelly Moody, owner of the Firehouse Art Gallery and Frame Shop. Kelly has recently went through surgery to remove a brain tumor and is currently undergoing radiation treatment for cancer. He has given a lot to the art community and we would like to show him some love and hopefully a little money during his recovery. To get updates on Kelly’s progress, visit his Caring Bridge journal – and maybe leave an encouraging word or two.

Artwork can be dropped off at Tangent Lab starting in November, going through December 2nd when the show will be hung. All mediums are welcomed and should be considered as donations to the cause. The work can be dropped off during business hours with IMG on the 3rd floor of the address below, or contact for another drop-off time or more information. If you drop off your work the evening of the December 2nd, you can help us hang the show!

Opening Reception:
The benefit will be held on Friday, December 4 starting at 7 p.m.. This just happens to be Kelly’s birthday, so we can really make it a party! Attendees will be able to bid on silent auction sheets provided for each piece, and a buy-out option will be in place so you can take the artwork home right away. At 10 p.m., high bidders will be able to pay for and take their work. This will be a CASH ONLY proposition, and all monies will go to Kelly.
