On Thursday, September 24, renowned sculptor and artist Anna Skibska will be hosting an End of Summer Soiree at the Anna Skibska Studio in Fremont, benefiting Artist Trust. This gathering will offer the opportunity to learn all about Anna Skibska’s artistic process while she is in her natural habitat, alongside art patrons and other artists in attendance. This includes arts scholar and advocate Michael Monroe (Director Emeritus of Bellevue Arts Museum, past curator for the Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery), who always brings an engaging discussion of art and makes it accessible to even inexperienced viewers.
In addition to raising money to fund Artist Trust’s GAP Program (Grants for Artist Projects), guests will also be able to view Anna Skibska’s famously sculpted jewelry (many pieces of which are currently on display at Kirkland Arts Center in her solo show Vanitas Vanitatum), as well as her trademark sculptures made of glass filaments. Small-scale work and jewelry will be available for purchase, with proceeds benefiting Artist Trust. Food and drink will be available at the event sponsored by Hilliard’s Beer and Dry Fly Distillery.
From Anna Skibska Studio:
Our goal is to raise $1,500 to fund a GAP (Grants for Artist Projects)! Suggested tax-deductible donation on a sliding scale, from $10 to $50 at the door. Pay what you can; cash or card accepted.
