4" x 6" Art Show to benefit Red Cross

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Face it, the Red Cross has been pretty good to us over the last few years. So why not give up more than a few pints of blood? Tonight from 7p-11p at the Nucleus Gallery (30 West Main Street, Alhambra, 91801) over 100 artists will be presenting work that has been created on 4" x 6" postcard sized mediums.

Do-gooders and art collectors may purchase up to five pieces for $100 each.

Here are the rules:
