This year ACRE hosts our Hearth annual benefit online to raise critical funds for ACRE’s residency and exhibition programs for emerging artists. Each fall ACRE friends and family gather around a shared meal and look ahead to creating its future together. The evening evokes the warmth and care of our residency program and celebrates the key features that make it special.

Hearth 2020 features an online auction that directly supports artists, with 50% of the final purchase price going directly back to every artist. A streaming reception presents performances and presentations by ACRE alumni artists. Home delivered ACRE Kitchen picnic basket meals with artist-made tableware are available for purchase to enjoy during the streaming reception. 

At the crossroads of ACRE’s 10-year anniversary, we look ahead to the next 10 years, imagining a future that is more equitable, more accessible, and with limitless possibility. There has never been a more important time to advocate for and champion artists. Your support is critical to forging a path forward. All funds raised are an investment in the visionary artists whose work will enliven and inspire the brighter days ahead.
