“Roots” Benefit Art Show for OLA at Southampton Cultural Center
April 26, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
OLA will exhibit the work of 65 Artists
in the ROOTS curated Benefit Show and Sale
Friday, April 26 from 6pm -8pm
The ROOTS Benefit Art Show & Sale is an international effort with works by artists from all over the globe including many here on the East End. One piece was flown in from the country Georgia.
Minerva Perez, Executive Director of OLA shares, “This process scared the heck out of me. I was out of my comfort zone and would never have done this without our curators: Amy Worth and Hector deCordova along with Joyce deCordova helping with logistics.” “The 65 pieces are truly stunning.” Minerva continued. “I never dreamed we would have such a response. We are so grateful to these artists and to the Southampton Cultural Center for letting us have our benefit show and sale in such an inviting space.”
Eric Fischl, one of the 65 artists in this show, has offered to make 100 signed and numbered prints of his piece WTF available, with 100% of the profits to benefit OLA.
Minerva exclaims, “I’m still in shock. These artists are doing so much to help OLA remain strong and committed.”
The ROOTS show will run from Friday, April 26 through Sunday, May 5 at 5pm at the Southampton Cultural Center located at 25 Pond Lane, Southampton, NY. In addition to all of the Fischl sales, 50% of all other sales will benefit OLA.
