Artsy affair raises funds for Jerusalem House

Add this share

The fabulously fun night of fundraising and art that is An Affair of the Art unfolded on Saturday to support two causes – housing for people with HIV and art education for students.

The annual event that benefits Jerusalem House and ArtsNow took place at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center in Buckhead. Flush with cocktails, tasty bites to eat and a live painting demonstration, the event is an art auction that features work from local artists, faculty and students. 

Funds raised at the event support the HIV housing programs of Jerusalem House and ArtsNow, which helps teachers incorporate art into their instruction. Enjoy photos from the 2016 event and its kickoff in 2014.
