No Bigger Than a Pie Box Fundraiser-ArtReach WNY: July 13, 2017

ArtReach asked a select group of artists to create a small work that would fit inside a pie box.  “We decided to play off of an iconic all American item, the apple pie,” explains Beth Smith.  “We thought about potential collectors and their size constraints.  Also, we did not want to put too much pressure on artists or take away too from time from their daily practice.”

With that, “No Bigger Than a Pie Box” was born.  All work will be sold through silent auction.  Participating artists include Bruce Adams, A.J. Fries, Amy Greenan, Anne Muntges, Peter Stephens, and many more.   Each of the original works available will be ready to hang and come housed in a commemorative pie box.  Each of the 20 artists involved will receive 50% of the sale price of their work and the remaining 50% will be split between charities selected by ArtReach: the Pride Center of WNYYWCA WNY, and Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York.

“No Bigger Than a Pie Box” will be held inside The Atrium of 500 Seneca Street on Thursday July 13th from 5:30 – 7:30pm.  The event will feature fine wines and heavy hors d’oeuvres.   Pre-sale tickets to the event are $20 for individual tickets and $30 per pair through July 10th.  Tickets can be purchased at the door for $20 a piece.  Tickets may be purchased online at: nobiggerthanapiebox.brownpapertickets.com

Local comedian Allie Brady will be the emcee for the evening.  Each of the charities benefitting from the silent auction will be on hand to share information about their services and promote potential volunteer opportunities.  Maria Pabico LaRotonda explains, “We are really excited to come together and not only make money for the artists we care about, but also raise money for charities that need it the most.”

More information about the event is available on ArtReach’s Facebook No Bigger Than a Pie Box.
