Hope U Art Show and Fundraiser
Hibbleton Gallery and Hope University announce The Hope U $100 Art Sale and Fundraiser, an exhibition featuring an intriguing collection of more than thirty gorgeously framed artworks by 19 artists living with disabilities.
The selection spans a wide range of mediums from drawing, painting, printmaking, scratchboard, and watercolor; offering visitors a great opportunity to purchase affordable, original art for a mere $100 each, while supporting a great cause.
The exhibition will be housed at Hibbleton Gallery, a member of the Magoski Art Colony, located at 223 W. Santa Fe Avenue, Fullerton, CA. The opening reception will be held on Friday, September 5th, from 6-10pm in conjunction with the First Friday Fullerton Art Walk.
“When you purchase a work of art by one of these unique artists,” says Exhibition Cooridinator, Lisa Lo Russo, “you support the artist and a vision for the future of Hope University in which more individuals can be touched by the transformational work taking place within its walls.”
Your purchase helps Hope University realize a long held dream to acquire its own facility so that they can better serve those who come through their doors with inspirational work in the arts.
