During the month of October through the closing reception on November 6th Hospice Savannah’s Miniature Masterpieces art show will hang in the Hospice Savannah Art Gallery located at 1352 Eisenhower Drive. This show, formerly know as the 5 by 7 Art Auction, is held annually each fall and would not be possible without the generosity of the many talented local artists who have donated such inspiring and original artwork.
Hospice Savannah warmly welcomes the public to preview the show during October and to make a start on holiday shopping by placing some bids! The closing reception will be held Thursday, November 6th at 5:30 p.m. with final bids being taken at 7:00 p.m.
Bids start at $50 - with many pieces priced even lower - and increase by $10 increments. Bidders do not have to be present to win - so if there is a piece a bidder loves, they are encouraged to bid high! There will be food, refreshments, and an honored guest judge will announce and award prizes donated by Blick Art Materials to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.
Proceeds from the silent art auction support the Daily Impact Fund helping us to deliver the special services which make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families each and every day. These include individual or group bereavement counseling for any child, teen or adult in our community; an overnight children’s grief camp; the complementary therapies of story keeping, massage therapy and music therapy; Pet Peace of Mind® which allows patients and their beloved pets to stay together; the “We Honor Veterans” Initiative; and the Steward Companion transitions program.
