JUPITER, Fla. (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Unique Glass Art and Unique Art Gallery had another successful open house March 13, 2013, titled “Healing Through Arts.”
“Healing Through Arts” raised money – and awareness – for the local nonprofit organization Friends 4 Cancer Research. The March event helped Friends 4 Cancer Research, a 501 (c) 3 outfit committed to providing funds to cancer-research facilities whose goals are finding better treatment methods, earlier diagnoses and, eventually, a cure. All funds from Friends for Cancer Research go to the cause.
Waterfront Properties and Club Communities is supportive of the open-house events and the causes they help. Rob Thomson, managing partner of the boutique South Florida brokerage, has served as a longtime volunteer for – and donor to – the American Cancer Society and several other deserving charities.
“Healing Through The Arts” featured an art-sale format, in which the original works were covered with brown paper labeled with the artist’s name, the title of the piece and the price. Each interested patron was able to see other creations by the artists to decide whether or not they would like to buy the covered-up art. “Healing Through Arts” marked the latest monthly installment of the galleries’ evening receptions, which run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and include a refreshments, a raffle and, frequently, a meet-and-greet with the artist. They receptions are planned by the Artists Association of Jupiter.
The Artists Association of Jupiter is a close collaboration of area artists who work together in an effort to promote the arts, and arts education, to the surrounding community of homes in Jupiter, as well as the rest of northern Palm Beach County. The Artists Association of Jupiter operates out of Unique Glass Art.
Unique Glass Art and Unique Art Gallery are at 226 Center St., near riverfront property in Jupiter, and are known not only for their charity but also for their quality.
