March 11, 2017 – Mark Your Calendar

We invite you to celebrate life in artistic Asheville, where OpenDoors students transform barriers into artful opportunities.  Life is our medium; education, enrichment and advocacy are our palette; and this vibrant city is our community canvas.  Join us, as we paint the town and invest in children– our shared future!

The Art Affair, a premier gala event created by OpenDoors of Asheville volunteers and presented by Harmony Motors, offers a live and silent art auction, a celebration of community, dozens of locally donated scrumptious cuisines, signature libations, and more.  Proceeds directly support initiatives to uplift young people challenged by poverty.  OpenDoors programming includes year-round tutoring, best-fit schools, enrichment activities, teacher training, summer camps and much more for Asheville’s most under-resourced youth.

We are currently seeking Corporate Sponsors and receiving work from Donating Artists.  For more information, please contact our Event Chair, Dosty Quarrier or our Art Chair, Kristan Dewey.  “The OpenDoors individualized approach to serving the children in our community is REAL,” explains Event Chair, Dosty Quarrier.  “This organization serves many Asheville families struggling to break the very complex cycle of social, economic, and educational hardship.  Please join us for this fun and extraordinary evening to help support positive outcomes for local youth.”

Working in partnership with over 20 local restaurants, 75 artists, and 25 sponsors, The Art Affair draws 350+ prominent, diverse, and community-minded guests in one elegant evening to educate, elevate and celebrate.  Please join us on March 11th!
