Join us for the Hearth Annual Benefit on October 12, 2021 to raise vital 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 conviviality of our residency program and celebrates the key features that make it special.
Hearth 2021 features an online auction that directly supports ACRE's artist community and its programs. 50% of final bids on works by ACRE alumni go directly to each artist and 50% go directly to funding ACRE’s programs. Additional works will support ACRE scholarships and programs directly. An in-person benefit event features food and drink in collaboration with Bungalow by Middlebrow and in the spirit of ACRE Kitchen’s famous pizza night at the residency. A live auction and paddle raises generate funds that directly support the 2022 ACRE Residency Program.
For 11 years ACRE has offered a space for artists to connect with peers and collaborators, to experiment and learn from one another, and to support each other, as we build the communities that we need to sustain our practices and create our futures together. Join us for ACRE’s biggest night of the year to support our artist-centered mission.
