A fundraising exhibition at Galerie B-312
- Fundraising Sale and Exhibition
—OPENING THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 2007 AT 7 PM
Galerie B-312 has been working for fifteen years on the dissemination and recognition of contemporary art. TO UNDERLINE-The contemporary art is rich, multiple, burst, but alive. TO PERSIST-Last year, we issued a cry of distress in front of a financial situation that was becoming for Galerie B-312, otherwise untenable, at least perilous and unstable. We were touched by the sympathy we received from artists and the community. And many of you have responded and encouraged us, among other things, by acquiring a work as part of the exhibition benefiting our centre. Sales have reached record highs. They alone accounted for 20 % of our operating budget. That’s how important the success of this event is to our organization. TO RESIST-Today, we are asking for your support again. TO PARTICIPATE-More than seventy artists have generously agreed to participate in this sale. Several private galleries collaborate by accepting that the artists they represent join us. Take part in this event by acquiring one of the seventy-five works of the exhibition. In doing so, you will actively and concretely support the art, the community, the artists and our centre of diffusion. BE INSPIRED-Works of art move us, seduce us, disturb us. It is a generous gesture to give to see, to hear, to understand and to love this world which belongs to us and which distinguishes us. It is another to support its existence and scope. TO SUCCOMB-Acquiring one or more works in such a context means supporting a place, practices, a network, a community: it is to underline, persist, resist, be inspired, succumb-FOR ART.
