“INSPIRED SOLES” ART SHOW AND AUCTION

6th Avenue Gallery exhibition features stilettos like you’ve never seen them before 

WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH A BLACK STILETTO AS A CANVAS?

Back for the third year, 6th Avenue Gallery presents the 2014 “Inspired Soles” art show, auction and raffle benefiting Artlink Phoenix. Local artists, designers and celebrities have transformed dozens of stilettos into works of art for an exhibition that gives new meaning to the term “well heeled.” See for yourself when the show debuts on First Friday in April and continues through First Friday in May.

FIRST FRIDAY DEBUT

The “Inspired Soles” stiletto art show will be unveiled at the April event and silent auction presented by 6th Avenue Gallery. Planned festivities include a silent auction of select pieces (remaining shoes will be raffled at the May show), live music, refreshments, mingling with the artists, and the opportunity to buy stilettos that are truly unmatched. By unmatched, we mean these artistic creations are sold as single pieces, not pairs…although we can occasionally accommodate requests for a matching pair if the design is wearable. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Artlink Phoenix, a nonprofit organization dedicated to linking artists, businesses and the public to better understand, appreciate and promote a thriving arts community in central Phoenix.

Inspired Soles stiletto art show will be open for private events and by appointment through April and May.
