Thank you so much for visiting my website! If you are here to participate in the Birthday Celebration & Auction on December 19th please read below for more information!
Arturo’s 25th Birthday Celebration & Auction Benefit in Support of Charter Arts!
You are formally invited to join us at “Re:Find” (located at 645 Hamilton St #106, Allentown, PA 18101) on Wednesday, December 19th from 5:00pm-7:00pm. I, along with the help of Jon Clark of Re:Find in Allentown, PA and Dian Labelle CEO of the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts in Bethlehem, PA, will be hosting an auction fundraiser contributing to the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts. The painting that is being auctioned off can be seen below!
The painting is titled “III.” It’s oil on canvas with silver and gold leaf. It stands 8 feet tall and 5 feet wide and was made in 2012. I hand built the stretcher bars with the help of my father and stretched the canvas myself. This painting is part of my first body of work called “Humanism” and was exhibited in my first ever solo show after graduating from the Charter Arts High School back in 2012. Most of the paintings in this collection have been sold. This is one of the last two remaining paintings.
If the painting is too large and won’t fit in your home you may still participate in the auction by having the option to donate the painting to the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts private collection. The school will provide you with a letter acknowledging the gift along with a full tax deduction equivalent to the cost of the painting! By donating the work to the private collection of the Charter Arts School you will not just be supporting education but inspiring students with art. The painting will be on view for the students to enjoy for years to come! A plaque acknowledging your generous donation will be made and hung with the painting when displayed.
We will have free wine and d'oeuvres at the event. Please feel free to invite as many people as you wish! So kick back and have a drink or two with some friends and let’s toast to 25 years! I’m so happy I can share this moment with so many of you. Please stay after for a special announcement! I can’t wait to share my story with you and am looking forward to continuing my career as an artist. I hope you can join me on my journey!
