Our mission is to partner worthwhile charities with talented artists to collectively share the joy of art and culture with as many people as we can.
In 2018, Ingrid Robinson launched Artists & Charities Hand in Hand with a small art exhibition and sale as a way to help raise funds for the Constance & David Blacher Children’s Special Needs Program. The show was a success, so Robinson took it a step further and organized a second show at the Lighthouse Point Yacht and Racquet Club, this time benefitting the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.
The two events were so successful that for her third charitable art show, Robinson has decided to triple the size, triple the impact, and triple the number of beneficiaries, as the organization debuts its inaugural fine art event: Artists & Charities Hand in Hand Fine Art Show Palm Beach County Convention Center November 2-3, 2019 | 11:00AM – 5:00PM
“Our mission is to partner worthwhile charities with talented artists to collectively share the joy of art and culture with as many people as we can,” said Robinson. “Let’s face it – a lot of artists struggle to earn a living even though they have such incredible talent; and so many nonprofits are in need of important funds to continue their mission in the community. So, if this event can help both groups achieve some of those goals, I’d say it’s a grand slam home run.”
The weekend art show and fundraiser will feature approximately 100 fine artists from across the U.S. showcasing their works in photography, paintings, mixed media, sculpture and more. In addition, Manuel Oliver, father of Parkland student Joaquin Oliver, will be on hand to do a live demonstration of his passionate painting, and highly popular Miami artist, Romero Britto, is scheduled to make an appearance over the weekend, as well.
Best of all, 20% of all art sales will be donated to the participating charities, all based in West Palm Beach: Armory Art Center, Dreyfoos School of the Arts Foundation, and Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. Though admission is free, a suggested contribution of $10 per person for admission will also be distributed evenly among the three beneficiaries. Those who can contribute will receive a special swag bag.
There is still time for artists and sponsors to participate in the upcoming Artists & Charities Hand in Hand Art Show. For more information, please Founder/Curator Ingrid Robinson at 415.419.4292 or visit www.artistsandcharities.com.
