HOT TICKET

Fighting AIDS, Artfully
Art4Life returns for its seventh yea

There’s nothing like a good cause to inspire people to not only tap into their generous nature, but also to access their creative side as well.

AIDS Foundation Houston’s Art4Life does both.

Now in its seventh year as one of AFH’s premier fundraisers, Art4Life features works by locally, nationally, and internationally acclaimed artists, all donated by the artists to benefit AIDS Foundation Houston. But rather than simply appreciating these impressive works, then going home emptyhanded with little more than a cultured memory, Art4Life patrons may actually purchase the art for their own collections and inspiration.

More than 50 individual artists have contributed their considerable talents to help AFH continue its 30-plus-year mission to support people living with HIV/AIDS. Additionally, the myriad Houston-area galleries supporting Art4Life include Anya Tish Gallery, Art Palace, Avis Frank Gallery, Devin Borden Gallery, Design Works, D. M. Allison Art, Gallery Sonja Roesch, Gallery M Squared, Goldesberry Gallery, Inman Gallery, The Menil Collection, Moody Gallery, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Nolan Rankin Galleries, Paul’s Art & Frame Gallery, Redbud Gallery, Skyline Art Services, Station Museum, Thornwood Gallery, The UNIT Store, Wade Wilson Art, and Whitten & Proctor Fine Art Conservation.

Beyond the evening’s proceeds benefiting AFH’s programs, four percent of the event’s proceeds help fund AFH’s Art4Life Scholarship, enabling a young adult who is infected or affected by HIV/AIDS the opportunity to pursue a higher education in the arts.

Scheduled Saturday, September 22, the blind juried art auction begins at 7 p.m. and also offers cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and entertainment. Generous individuals designated as patrons of Art4Life get a sneak peek at the artwork at preview parties, scheduled September 17 and 19. More info: aids help.org/art4life. Nancy Ford
