This spring’s art series concludes with a special event weekend, April 11-14.
The excitement begins on Thursday with a Community Outreach Event at the Paradise Valley home of artist Beth Ames Swartz. A percentage of the proceeds from her art sales, as well as those of Wolf Kahn and Hunt Slonem, will be donated to the buyer’s charity of choice (JDRF or A New Leaf). With raffle tickets available for $300, up to 10 winners will receive a Beth Ames Swartz art piece (total value $1,500). For information, call 866.317.8016.
