FRANK Gallery, nonprofit artists’ collective showcasing the work of local and regional fine artists, in Chapel Hill, NC announces that tickets are now on sale for its fourth annual birthday bash and fundraising gala, OFF THE WALL. The gala will kick off at 6 pm at FRANK Gallery on Saturday, Apr. 12, 2014. This popular and highly anticipated event has sold out well in advance during the past three years.
The gala’s focus is its wall of original artist-donated fine art, including paintings, woodwork, sculpture, pottery and jewelry, among other media. Each art ticket holder will have a chance to select a piece of art OFF THE WALL or from the display cases and take it home. Generous local restaurants provide food and drink. Proceeds from ticket sales will help support FRANK’s educational and community outreach programs and exhibits.
How it works:
FRANK artists and other well-known area artists have donated 100 works of art, valued from more than $300 to $3,000. Only 100 Art Tickets will be sold, equal to the number of artworks, ensuring that each Art Ticket holder will take home a work of art valued at considerably more than the cost of the ticket.
During the event, excitement builds as the gala host, WUNC radio’s Frank Stasio, draws names randomly and then allows the lucky individuals to take their selections OFF THE WALL.
Donated artwork will be on display before the fundraiser, beginning Tuesday, April 1st, at FRANK. Art donated to date can be viewed on the Web at (www.frankisart.com/gala2014).
Off THE WALL Art Tickets are now on sale for $250 each and are available at FRANK Gallery, 109 East Franklin Street, Chapel Hill; by phone at 919/636-4135; and online at (www.frankisart.com/gala2014). Companion tickets are available for $50 when accompanied by a $250 art ticket purchase.
