SAVE PLANET ART and toast the artists, too!

Julyen Norman
"Globe for 1708"

Thirty artists are working to "save the planet with an old box of art supplies," to sum up Ronnie Sampson's simple update on Facebook after agreeing to tackle the "global aspect" of 1708's 19th annual art auction "SAVE PLANET ART."

Please join us at 6:30pm tomorrow evening, February 20, to toast over 70 artists who are participating in 1708's annual benefit auction. To see a preview of the globes that have been recycled for this year's silent auction you can visit the blog which documents this effort:

One can begin bidding at the preview on Friday, the 20th if you want to insure that you'll go home with a piece of Planet Art! Individual tickets and sponsors are still available for the live and conclusion of the silent auction on Saturday, February 28. Please join us to celebrate 1708 Gallery's thirty years of showing new art in Richmond!
