“Romancing Art” at Off the Wall

It will be love at first sight as the Art Alliance of the Riverside Art Museum brings back Off the Wall. Join us for the Opening Night Gala and Sale on Friday, February 20, 2015. Come and enjoy French food, music, and wine, and sweep the art that catches your eye right “off the wall” and into your waiting arms.

All art will be original and priced at incredible prices, from $100 to $300, so hurry up and buy your ticket to the gala and opening sale for $25 to get your best pick. Doors open at 6:00 p.m., but sponsors will get a special early pass. (To purchase tickets or become a sponsor, email Emmanuelle Reynolds at mr1776@sbcglobal.net or Suzy Clem at suzyclem5@hotmail.com.)

The sale continues for everyone until Wednesday, February 25, 2015.
