On Saturday, April 16 at Next Wall Gallery, member artists of the Visual Arts Alliance (VAA) will participate in a 12-hour (720-minute) pop-up fundraiser and mix-and-mingle for artists and patrons. Artists will begin painting, drawing, sculpting at 9 a.m., with work continuing throughout the day. This year there will also be a live model from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. An ART720 reception will begin at 6 p.m. and all pieces created during the day will be available for sale for $100 each, including tax. All proceeds benefit VAA.

The public is invited to attend ART720, observing and interacting with the artists as they create the art in the medium of their choice. All artwork will be for sale before, during and after they are complete. Guests can pop in and out throughout the day, and return during the reception to pick up or purchase work.

The first ART720 was held two years ago. “It was great fun – and an excellent fund-raiser for VAA. Everyone who stopped by loved the opportunity to see how artists work. And then to have the opportunity to actually purchase an original art piece for only $100! It was a unique experience for all, not to mention a wonderful way to collect art, and get to know Houston artists in person,” says Matt Adams, President, Visual Arts Alliance.

Artists who would like to participate in ART720, should contact Julia Koutroulis at [email protected].

There is no charge to watch artists creating their works or to attend the reception. Reservations are not necessary. Next Wall Gallery is located at 1717 Michigan Street, 77006. For directions to the gallery, visit
