An art auction will be held to benefit local artists and artisans for social change and
education. The aim is to network local artists and create events and products that will stimulate new awareness of the diversity and innovation of art in our community.
Art Auction to Benefit Local Artists and Artisans

Cambridge, MA. (April 6, 2004) – Aquarii Arts will host an Art Auction on Sunday April 18th at 3PM at the Zeitgeist Gallery in Cambridge. Proceeds will directly benefit the local artists and artisans whose work is being featured. This is the first event in a series of shows, publications and parades that are planned for the calendar year.

The auction will feature works of prominent local painters, photographers, sculptors and crafts people. Pieces of Tibetan, Indian, and Nepalese art will also be up for auction in this showcase of up-and-coming talent.

Aquarii Arts is a new force on the Cambridge art scene, active since 2003. The group empowers local artists' visions for social change and education by facilitating community-based artistic projects like the April 18th auction. The auction serves a dual purpose of networking local artists and establishing events and products that stimulate new awareness of the diversity and innovation of art in the Greater Boston community. "The auction is exciting because it gives the artists a chance to showcase their work to an interested community in a venue not normally available to them" says organization founder, Nate Peyman.

Admission will be available at the door for a suggested donation of $10. For more information, contact the Artist Organizer of Aquarii Arts, Nate Peyman at 617.899.8430.
