Fine Art Auction Gala to benefit the Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park
With Live Entertainment and Gourmet Food and Wine
Don’t miss this gala event on Sunday June 10th at Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm. The Silent Auction will take place in the Sala de Milagros Ballroom while local musicians entertain you and Rene of Tlaquepaque serves gourmet light fare and wine on the upper terrace.
The silent auction features over 50 works by local professional artists as well as emerging artists, with values starting from $100. Generous contributions include art by James Muir, Joella Jean Mahoney, Susan Kliewer, Nicholas Honshin, Susan Pitcairn and Bear Cloud to name just a few. One of the many paintings that have been generously donated to the silent auction, “Chaco Walls,” a 24” by 30” oil on canvas, was inspired by artist Nancy Ruby’s visit to Chaco Canyon, one of the 21 IONESCO World Heritage Sites in the United States.
“I come to the canvas with my purpose only to represent the respect I have for the ones who lived and flourished there. I have painted their walls, windows, and kiva floor plan. I painted the brilliant blue sky that is so much a part of the year in the Southwest,” says Nancy of her painting. “Time gone, time here. We still gather, still pray. We travel. We trade goods. I offer this painting to the Amitabha Stupa as it is a site of prayer, of energy gathering, releasing, of peace.”
Tickets will be available at the door for $30 and advance tickets are available by calling 1-888-862-0433. For more information on this Sedona event please visit the Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park page on Facebook.
