Thanks to the generous support of the Thomas E. Jernigan Foundation, we think 2017's Art from the Heart will be the best one yet.
Here's what we have going on:
First off, we have moved to a new location this year! Haven is located in the Lakeview District of Birmingham. With our valet service and plentiful street parking available near the venue, parking should be a breeze. We're also including a Buy Now option on select pieces in our Silent Auction room - meaning that anyone (especially the early birds) can purchase a pieces at a set price without needing to stay until the end of the auction. Also new for this year: an exclusive Patrons' Pre-Party. We'll be releasing more details when we launch our ticket sales, but the Patrons' Pre-Party will grant early access to both our Buy Now and Cash n' Carry art, special cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, and live music.
We'll still have the same great food and drinks for every one to enjoy while they shop our Cash N' Carry art selection, make bids on our Silent Auction items, and wait for the excitement of the Live Auction to begin.
We also want to take the time to thank the nearly 200 Donating Community Artists from Birmingham and beyond. Without their generous donations of art for our Silent and Live Auctions, we wouldn't be able to serve the 40+ artists that come to our studio each week. Some of our donating artists have been donating pieces for 20 years!
And to the many volunteers who donate their time and effort - the SBTT staff and artists are eternally grateful.
