free art event, inexpensive artwork (Mental Health Art Auction)

Honestly, I have seen some really spectacular pieces go for 20$. I will have 2 pieces in this auction -- at least one painting, although I haven't quite decided what to donate yet.

The 19th Annual Mental Health Art Auction is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 31 at 6 pm
at Cine. There is no charge to attend the auction.

Lots of other events besides the Art Auction, too, and if you know of artists who might participate, please pass along the info.

We're getting ready for the 19th Annual Mental Health Art Auction on Saturday, January 31, at 6 pm at Cine in downtown Athens. We're in need of more art for the event. If you have not done so already, I humbly ask that you consider contributing a piece or two to the event.

The funds raised support our work of educating the public about mental illness and advocating for those who have mental illness. It also enables us to continue to host a weekly Social Club for those who suffer from mental illness.
Also, there will be an Artists' Reception on Sunday, January 25 at Cine
from 2 to 4 in the afternoon.

If you would like to donate your art, you can drop your donations off at any of the four Athens Art & Frame locations:

553 Prince Avenue
Monday to Friday 10 am to 5:30 pm, Saturday 10 am to 2 pm

351 East Clayton Street
Monday to Friday 10 am to 6 pm, Saturday 10 am to 5 pm

1285 Cedar Shoals Drive
Monday to Friday 9:30 am to 5:30 pm, Saturday 10 am to 4 pm

2061 Experiment Station Road (Oconee)
Monday to Friday 10 am to 6 pm, Saturday 10 am to 5 pm

There's a little form to complete so we can share your website or email with those who like your art and are interested in buying more.
Thank you for your support of Mental Health America of Northeast Georgia.
If you have any questions, call the director (Eddie) @ 770-633-3513

In addition to the Art Auction, we have a great movie "In a Dream" at Cine on Tuesday and Thursday (January 27 & 29) at 7 pm both nights. This is the story of a Philadelphia mosaic creator and the issues he faces when
his son makes a documentary about the artist's life.

And our friends FIVE EIGHT play at 40Watt for us on Friday, January 30. They have A Hope foragoldensummer and Vigilantes of Love on the bill as well! It will be a great show! (Starts at 9 pm)
