On May 17, the Evanston Art Center (EAC) board of trustees, and Event Chair Linda Beck, hosted a closing night gala for the 27th Annual Spring Benefit Art Auction.
With more than 250 guests in attendance, the event netted $45,000 in art sales and donations that will provide art education, exhibitions and other outreach programs to the community, such as Art VanGo. The art-loving public had an opportunity to view and bid on paintings, drawings, photographs, ceramics, sculpture, prints, and other artworks donated by more than 110 Chicago-area artists, including Jill King, Jane Fulton Alt, Susan Sensemann, Didier Nolet, Larry Chait and Eleanor Spiess-Ferris.
