Spring Art Fair by Alex Bieler

New York City may be over six hours away, but a part of the Big Apple will be right in Erie, helping to benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children – Erie Ambulatory Surgery Center and Outpatient Specialty Care Center.

Fifteen artists from New York City will have their original works of art displayed from 5 to 9 p.m. May 1 and 2 at the Erie Center auditorium, with pieces ranging from Renaissance-inspired portraits to illusionist watercolors, all available to buy for your collection. In addition to the visual goods up for grabs, fifty percent of all net purchases at the Art Fair will go directly to patient care services at Shriners Hospital.

Organized by Erie native Larry Walczak, a practicing artist and educator in Brooklyn, the Spring Art Fair takes a slice of culture from the Big Apple to treat local art enthusiasts, while Shriners Hospitals’ medical programs benefit from the rest of the creative pie.  — Alex Bieler

5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, May 1 and Friday, May 2 // 1645 W. Eighth St. // 875.8700
