February 20 – February 20, 2009

1708 Gallery’s biggest fundraiser of the year, Save Planet Art, will be presented on Saturday,
February 28, 2009 at 7:00pm. Frances Lewis, long time supporter and art collector, is
serving as the Honorary Chair of this event.

52 works of art by the area’s best emerging and established artists will be available through a live auction. The silent auction features 30 Globes, each created by a different
artist who has contributed to 1708 Gallery's thirty years of presenting new art in Richmond. A
sampling of these artists includes founding members Joseph Seipel and Tom Chenoweth,
Peter Culley, Ruth Bolduan, Eleanor Rufty, Sandra Luckett, Carole Garmon, Chris Chase and
Louis Poole. To see images of the Globes, go HERE.

This auction is a great opportunity to build your art collection at reasonable prices while supporting 1708 Gallery’s exhibitions and programs. Proceeds of the auction directly support 1708 Gallery’s exhibitions and educational programs.

Save Planet Art is dedicated to the memory of William Fields.

The auction exhibition opened February 20th and is on view through February 28th. The bidding for the Globes in the silent auction started on February 20th and will end at 7:45pm on February 28, the day of the auction. 1708 Gallery is open every day from 9 am - 5:00pm.
