“The awesomeness has been pouring into our offices,” says Tim Buckwalter, gallery director at NIAD Art Center.
We have to agree.
On April 16, the Richmond art center is holding its large annual fundraising event at Clif Bar & Company’s headquarters in Emeryville, where every attendee goes home with artwork. But the event, called Win Win Win 4, includes opportunities to view and purchase artwork at the NIAD Art Center galleries starting April 1.
More than 80 national and local artists, including those in NIAD’s studio art program, have been commissioned to produce paintings, photographs, sculptures, fibers and drawings in a standard 6 x 6” format for the annual benefit exhibition. For the first time this year, a dozen works are 24 x 24.
On Saturday, April 16, all of the pieces will move to the NIAD Center’s fundraising gala event, which takes place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Clif Bar HQ at 1451 66th St. in Emeryville. Admission to the event is $30 and includes a randomly chosen piece of art off the wall. A $60 ticket includes a pre-chosen piece.
“With records spun by Bill Zindel, light refreshments, a photo booth and film screening, Win Win 4 let’s you take a randomly chosen piece of art off the wall and put it in your heart, all while helping a terrific studio arts program,” said Tim Buckwalter, gallery director at NIAD Art Center.
The NIAD Art Center is a nonprofit organization that provides a space for artists with disabilities to learn, create and exhibit contemporary art.
