The 2nd Annual "Art & Cocktails" Art Auction to benefit the community organizing programs of Tremont West Development Corporation will be held May 2, 2009 at Asterisk Gallery in Tremont.

Tremont West Development Corporation is requesting submissions of original art to be exhibited and auctioned to benefit this program that is so vital to the welfare of the residents of our neighborhood. Community organizers staff block clubs, help run events like the Arts and Cultural Festival and the Tremont Farmers' Market and educate residents about community programs, events and issues.

We are seeking donated work from professional artists, advanced amateurs and art students. This is a non-juried event; however, the committee reserves the right to make final selections as space allows.

Artists contributing pieces for silent auctions will have their names listed on the program and, if work is received early enough, in press releases for the event.

Please let us know by Friday, April 24, if you plan to donate artwork to the silent auction. All artwork for the silent auction is due by Wednesday, April 29. Artists are welcome to specify a minimum bid for their work.
