Art 4 Shelter is a great way to find artwork gems while also supporting Simpson Housing Services, an organization that provides things like emergency shelter and subsidized housing to those in need. For this party, local artists and art students have donated postcard- and poster-sized pieces to the cause. You might find something by Jodi Reeb, Jill Van Sickle, Jim Denomie, or Ruthann Godollei, who are among the hundreds of artists included in the show. You won’t know who did what, however, until after you’ve purchased one, as artists have only signed the backs of their contributions. The benefit features over 1,000 works on paper; each 5” x 7” piece is priced at $35, and 8” x 10” pieces are priced at $90. Art will be restocked throughout the evening, so it’s fun to mingle and enjoy refreshments as you take several tours through the space. Find more info at www.simpsonhousing.org/art-4-shelter.
