Starlight Studio and Art Gallery is an amazing place. They  support adults with disabilities in their artistic development. Through technical assistance by professional artists, on-site and off-site exhibitions and other opportunities for representation and sales, the Starlight artists hone their artistic interests, become stronger advocates and better integrated citizens.

And now, you can support Starlight as they support others. I know, awesome.

They’re getting ready for their 3rd annual Co-Artifact silent auction fundraiser. The project brings 15 artists from the community and 15 Starlight artists together to create collaborative artworks. The finished pieces will be auctioned off at an event hosted by Eleven Twenty Projects.

Here’s how it works.

Each artist was asked to create a piece of artwork in the medium and size of their choice. A starlight artist and community artist were then paired and switched artworks which they then completed. 30 original artworks are up for the community to bid on during the night of the event.


WHEN: Thursday, April 19th from 6 to 9 p.m.

WHERE: Eleven Twenty Projects, 1120 Main Street, Buffalo

There will be a DJ, cash bar and light refreshments. Bidding closes at 8 p.m.

All proceeds will go to support Starlight Studio and Art Gallery and future projects.
