The 2nd Annual Charity Art Auction

The Artists in the Attic are pleased to announce our upcoming auction is

from 6 - 9 p.m.
This year's recipient will be the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington. A 501(c)3 organization, the Cinema's mission is to bring the best in cinematic artistry to Long Island and expand the awareness and consciousness of our community. You can visit their website at

Last year's auction for the Heckscher Museum of Art was a huge success and gave us the chance to invite along some guest artists to join in the celebration. We'd like to continue with that tradition, and invite everyone to join us for a fabulous night of refreshments, raffles and of course some fantastic art work. Paintings, sculpture, photography and maybe a surprise* or two will be available for bidding. Although the bidding starts at 6 p.m., all work will be available for preview from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. the day of the event.

So remember kids, keep the spirit of art and film alive... support your local artists and filmmakers. Important note: the auction is a one-night only event. All pieces will be sold that night so don't forget those wallets, folks.

Art & Antiques & Auctions on the Avenue... perfect!

Speaking of surprises...who saw the magical mystery motion machine in this year's Unity in the Community parade?'s time!

Lots to do this Attic season... the silent auction, the Huntington Day parade, a Heckscher museum tour... before we get into overdrive, let's all come out for a fine First Friday Reception. When would that be, you ask? Why on September 10 of course, from 6-8 p.m. Newsday may have been a bit overzealous in our return, but I promise dear art lovers, this is the date! And to celebrate the occasion, Serenade Duo will be joining us for a fantastic performance. For a preview, feel free to visit their website:

See you on the 10th...

Keep the light on...

We'll be back in the fall for the return of our First Friday events (where some great local musicians may be stopping by), the Unity in the Community parade and carnival, our 2nd Annual Charity Art Auction, and an open studio tour with the Hecksher Museum...
Lots to come, so stay tuned.

And, 10% of all artists' sales that night will also go to the cause. So come on down, bring your friends, and help some great folks help some great animals.
