Art For Life’s Sake

As a nonprofit organization, Desotorow Gallery relies heavily on contributed funds.  Art for Art’s Sake is the gallery’s largest fundraising event of the year, and supports the daily operations of the gallery as well as the creation of new programs designed to serve the Savannah community.

This silent art auction has featured work by local and nationally-known artists. Artists featured at past auctions include Scott Griffin (recognized by Savannah Magazine as a “Rising Star”), Carrie Christian (published in “New American Paintings”), and Preston Orr (represented by Robert Steele Gallery in New York).

This year’s silent art auction will take place on Friday, June 9th from 6 to 9 p.m. and feature art, hors d’oeuvres, and live musical performances by Each And Every Opus and the Lovely Locks. In addition to incredible works of art, auction items will also include packages donated by local businesses.
