What happens when you combine artistic expression and celebrity status? A fashionable and fun event with a big heart is sure to shape up. April 29th, 2016 the 7th Annual ART FROM THE HEART celebrity Art Auction & Benefit will take place at Lofty Spaces – a chic venue perfectly suited to bring together the charitable and the artistic of the Dallas society. The Auction is organized around the artwork of many local and national celebrities, personalities, athletes, as well as professional artists of various media.

The glitzy affair has a 1920’s cocktail theme, and is sure to boast an array of elegant Great Gatsby aficionados. Guests will have the chance to meet some of the celebrities and professional artists, enjoy bites, cool beverages and a hopping dance floor. “I could not be more excited about this year’s Art From The Heart benefit,” says event co-chair Carmen Surgent, “With the caliber of artists we have participating this year, guests and collectors will be delighted with the variety and quality of artwork that will be available for auction! We expect this to be our most successful event yet!”

The proceeds of the ART FROM THE HEART auction benefit Dallas Challenge, a leading provider of programs to help youth stay in school, off drugs

and alcohol and out of the criminal justice system. Tickets are $125 for an individual or $200 for a couple and can be purchased by visiting www.artfromtheheartdallas.com.
