Art For Chile Auction Kicks Off Tomorrow

Maya Allison, curator of recently-shuttered gallery 5 Traverse, is teaming up with photographers Frank Mullin and Magaly Ponce for a silent auction and exhibition to benefit victims of the earthquakes and tsunami that have recently affected Chile, where rural areas were deeply devastated and where winter is coming.

The pieces being auctioned come from a who’s who of local artists:

Heather Adels, Boris Bally, Margaret Bellafiore, Jenny Brown, BILT Furniture, Margie Butler, Alyn Carlson, Nancy Reid Carr, John Caserta, Paul Clancy, Margaret Cogswell, Umberto Crenca, Jennifer Daltry, Francisco De la Barra, Thorsten Dennerline, Jonathan Derry, Ellen Driscoll, Elizabeth Duffy, Dave Everett, Stephanie Ewens, Bonnie Frechette, Erik Gould, Ani Ghajanian, Jungil Hong, Jon Laustsen, Deborah Liberti, Rob Lorenson, Agata Michalowska, Kathleen McAreavey, Megan & Murray McMillan, Josie Morway, Jamey Morrill, Frank Mullin, Wey O’Malley, Alison Owen, Michael Owen, Peter Owen, Allison Paschke, Magaly Ponce, Lisa Perez, Jessica Deane Rosner, Kate Sanders-Fleming, Olivia Sauerwein, Derek Schusterbauer, Laura Shirreff, Andrew Sloan, Dan Talbot, Tucker, Neal T. Walsh, and Amy Wynne-Derry.

Tomorrow’s also gallery night.  Though the downtown gallery scene is, uh, best left unmentioned this month, the show in City Hall, She Works Hard For The Money, features art made by 25 local women who run non-profits.  In other parts of town, there’s also the Pat Steir show at the RISD museum, and it’s also your last chance to check out the current shows at Wheeler’s Chazan Gallery and the Providence Art Club.

232 Westminster Street (the Butterfield/Waste Not Want Not/everything temporary that ever happens space next to Symposium)
Thursday, 3/18
5-8pm
The space will also be open through the weekend.  The auction ends Sunday at 5.
