This week people had the opportunity to celebrate creativity and two great causes at “An Affair of the Art,” an art auction and cocktail party to benefit Jerusalem House and ArtsNow. This unique event brought together two non-profits to help raise programmatic funds and awareness for both. Guests had the chance to bid on works created by local artists, faculty and students from schools and colleges. The event also featured one-of-a-kind works of art created by Jerusalem House’s adult and child residents, under the direction of ArtsNow consultants. The evening’s emcee was Kaedy Kiely, radio host on 97.1 The River, and revelers enjoyed tastings from local restaurants and caterers, an open bar featuring signature cocktails by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and works of art created in front of your eyes by Kent Knowles and Patrick Hanson.
