Art Dash Online Show & Sale
Shop More Than 450 Art Pieces and Auction Items Online.
Each Sale Helps Us Prevent the Spread of HIV in the Mid-South!
Art lovers and savvy shoppers unite! Art Dash is back with a special Winter edition that puts fine art to work in the fight against HIV. Our Online Gallery of diverse art pieces is available for FOUR weeks of show and sale. Many styles and mediums will be represented, as well as artists of all varieties!
How the Art Dash Winter Show and Sale Will Work
As many of you know, the typical Art Dash Gala allows our guests to pay $125 per ticket ... and walk away with art valued between $125 and $5,000 or more. It’s all a luck of the draw!
This time, you can dash for the piece you want FIRST by simply buying it directly from our site. No tickets required! Over all four weeks, Dash pieces (marked with a "D" in the item number) will decrease in price from their listed value in a retail setting to as low as just $50! These bargains are based on the week you buy:
Week 1 (February 14—20):
All works will be available for a donation that represents their actual retail values. A great way to show the MOST support for Friends For Life!
Week 2 (February 21—27):
All Dash works (items that start with a “D” in their number) will be available for a flat donation of $125.
Week 3 (February 27—March 6):
All Dash works will be available for a flat donation of $75.
Week 4 (March 7—13):
All Dash works will be available for a flat donation of just $50.
All pieces will be hosted in an online gallery that will provide information and valuation on each work. The link for the online gallery and limited opportunities to see the art in person will be available in the next week. Until then, please keep the donations coming! All donations support our efforts to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic here at home.
