The Artists for Beto event was inspired by artist Georganne Deen’s desire to auction a single painting in order to raise funds for Beto O’Rourke’s campaign for Governor of Texas. From that spark of an idea, 39 artists have come together for an online art auction, art show, and Rally at the Gallery. All of the participating artists are from Texas or reside in Texas and have rallied by way of donating artworks for auction in support of Beto’s campaign to lead our home state. Dina Light-McNeely and Erin Cluley are organizing and hosting the event with support from the Artists and the Campaign.
For the Rally at the Gallery Beto O’Rourke will speak to the crowd. Voter registration. Beloved Dallas DJ Lucy Wrubel will provide tunes as guests enjoy food and drinks from local food trucks – Ruthies, Greek Lovers and Baldo’s Ice Cream. Artists for Beto T-shirts designed by Artist Ric Heitzman will be available for purchase. Volunteers will provide voter registration and information for upcoming local and state elections. Inside Erin Cluley Gallery, guests can view and bid on amazing contemporary artworks. 100% of the proceeds from the event will go to the campaign.
