The weekend art show and fundraiser will feature approximately 80 fine artists from across the U.S. showcasing their works in photography, paintings, mixed media, sculpture and more.
Best of all, 20% of all art sales will be donated to three participating charities, all based in West Palm Beach: Armory Art Center, Dreyfoos School of the Arts Foundation, and Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.
Though admission is free, a suggested contribution of $10 per person for admission will also be distributed evenly among the three beneficiaries. Those who can contribute will receive a special swag bag.
About Ingrid Robinson, Founder, Artists & Charities Hand in Hand:
When Ingrid Robinson heard the news of the sudden death of her only child, Michelle, she fell into a terrible depression. During this dark and mournful period, Ingrid fell victim to a financial fraud, which ultimately caused her to lose her home of 40 years and nearly everything she had. In search of a new life, Ingrid left California and moved to Florida with not much more than her two little dogs. Her tiny apartment in Florida happened to be a part of a community which had an art room in the clubhouse.
At the tender age of 71, Ingrid started painting to fight through her severe depression. Her charming oil paintings gained popularity and it wasn't long until she was commissioned to create 20 works for a gallery in Delray Beach.
In 2018, Ingrid launched Artists and Charities as a way to help artists showcase and sell their work in a professional fine art show setting, partnering with nonprofits in the community in support of their important work.
