Autobody Fine Art is celebrating it’s incorporation as a 501 © (3) non-profit charitable organization benefiting emerging and mid-career artists from the East Bay and surrounding areas. We have come a long way since we opened in March of 2007 and our evolution has been in response to the needs of the creative people we set out to support, and the audience and community that has become an integral part of Autobody Fine Art.

We have asked the artists whose exhibitions have defined the programming at the gallery to donate work for our silent auction. Throughout the evening you will be able to bid on a wide variety of artwork and add to your collection by purchasing a favorite piece. In addition to the silent auction a special edition print portfolio featuring Autobody Fine Art artists will be printed as a limited, numbered edition of 20 folios. Each edition will be printed on high quality archival paper and offered at $100.00 for the series of five prints. Autobody Fine Art members will receive a $25.00 discount on the purchase price, - a further incentive to become a member right now! Reserve your edition early as these are certain to sell out quickly.

To help you get in the mood for the evening we will be serving cocktails and finger food and listening to live music. Throughout the evening, Amy, Colin and I will be there to discuss future programs, events, and ideas for the coming year, and we welcome your input and comments. All proceeds from the benefit will go to support the continued programming and community outreach offered by Autobody Fine Art, and your purchases (as donations) will be fully tax deductible for the tax year 2010.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the event. It will be a great way to catch up, celebrate the past two years and look towards the future. We are thrilled to have brought contemporary art to Alameda and we are equally as excited by the challenges and opportunities offered in the year to come.

Please contact Amy M. George, Gallery and Events Director at amy [at] autobodyfineart.com, for images of the artworks offered and further information. Check the website regularly for updates, http://www.autobodyfineart.com, and purchase your tickets and the print portfolio by using Paypal.
