An Earthy Cause



This Friday, join local artists and musicians at "Art for Earth's Sake," an art auction benefiting the National Wildlife Federation. Proceeds will go towards the restoration of wildlife in the Gulf.


"About five weeks ago I sent out an email to local artist friends I have," says event organizer, Emily Walls, "and asked who would be willing to do something to support the wildlife of the gulf right now. It was kind of a half-idea. I didn't really expect to get as much response as I did. All the artists immediately said, 'Yes, if you organize something we'd love to donate.'"

Artists featured include Greely Myatt, Beth Edwards, Tad Lauritzen Wright, and others.

Marshall Arts will host the event, and local restaurants like Tsunami and the Hi Tone have agreed to provide food. Local musicians Holly Cole, Blaire Combest, and Bryan Hartley will each perform during the silent auction. The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m., is free and open to the public, and donations will be accepted from those who do not wish to participate in the auction.
