Woven into the tapestry of each artwork is "Hope in Tomorrow." The special artwork that can be purchased to assist the victims includes drawings, paintings and sculpture such as:

Joseph Gatto, Craftsman, best expressed the feelings of the Art Bridges Gallery artists by saying, "At this time of sorrow and tragedy, many people are rebuilding their lives as well as their homes, and from our hearts we are offering food for the soul." Gallery Director Joan DeBruin adds, "The artists said they feel grateful to be able to offer their services in this way -- art is what they know. This is an incomparable way to donate to a cause that affects all of us."

Art Bridges Gallery is a one-of-a-kind online experience for businesses, collectors and the public. The online gallery can be navigated through three distinct gallery spaces.

The artwork may be picked up at the artist's studio. Additional costs will apply if the artwork needs to be shipped. (California taxes will apply since Art Bridges Gallery is not a non-profit organization). The gallery includes a secure means to purchase these exceptional pieces.
