Works on Paper Benefit 2012

Collect new art and support LES art & artists:

“A Benefit from the Edge” on Friday June 1 – Sunday June 3

open 12pm-7pm at CUCHIFRITOS Gallery/Project Space

Organized by: Nancy Friedemann and Charley Friedman, for its 3rd year in a row, Artists Alliance Inc is excited to invite you to our Works on Paper benefit.

The artworks are $100 or less, with a wide range of work that has been generously donated by emerging, mid-career and established artists. The affordability allows artists to be collectors and provides an opportunity for art enthusiasts to inexpensively invest in a diverse selection of art such as prints, drawings, paintings, collage, and photographs.

All the proceeds of the benefit support Artists Alliance Inc, a non-profit art organization based on the Lower East Side that provides vital resources to artists and connects them to the local community.
