Below are two such events I'm participating in this weekend that are working to help aid and carry on the creative values that the Ghost Ship tenants and participants who are no longer with us supported. Both will be donating to the victims' general fund HERE, which can also be donated to directly.
All artwork in the gallery will be auctioned silently with 25-100% of each sale (determined by the artist) going to the general relief fund. We're going to get as much art as we can, and the price ranges will be from under $10 up to a few thousand. Several of our studio artists will have their work available in their spaces and will be donating a share of sales to charities of their choosing.
When: 2-day event, Friday, Dec 10th from 5:30-9:00pm and Saturday Dec 11th from 11-5pm.
Where: Faultline ArtSpace, 850 42nd Ave #2D (Entrance and Parking at 815 High Street), Oakland
All work is viewable online for bidding here: http://www.faultlineartspace.com/heart-silent-auction/
Bidding closes at 5pm Saturday on all items.
Faultline will continue to raise funds for the Ghost Ship victims beyond this event. Follow them for updates.
This is a fundraiser, not a party.
Many of our neighbors will also be open Friday night. This Second Friday reception is held in conjunction with the 11th Annual Jingletown Winter Open Studios.
Participating galleries and artist studios include:
Faultline ArtSpace, Float Gallery, Ford Street Studios, Gray Loft Gallery, Jingletown Art Studios and Gallery
Wonderland SF's Holiday Show:
"This Saturday DECEMBER 10th lets give back! support local artists for a great cause! In the last few weeks there has been a few devastating events in the Bay Area and I know it’s hard to celebrate through these hard times. I would like to bring our art community together and do something positive that feels good. December 10, 2016 Wonderland SF will be having our holiday party and opening reception of $300 and under art from 6-10pm. All art will be $300 or less. I will be donating 10% of all the sales that day to the victims affected by the Oakland fire. Everyone is welcomed to this event."
Also bring an unwrapped toy. All toys will be donated to Toys for tots. Or, bring a warm coat to be delivered to different homeless camps here in SF.
