The Côte des Dons
WEDNESDAY JUNE 2, 2021 |
A self-taught artist of Swiss origin, Alissa “Liss” Silvers, can still call Münchwilen house, but she has since transplanted to Sarasota to continue her works of art which are now on display in private and public collections in the United States and Switzerland. The backbone of her designs reflects “an intimate expression of the unique individuals she has met and the various places in which she has lived and traveled”.
Known for her combination of abstract art, brand identity designs and evocative portrait illustrations, her colorful and expressive art naturally aligns with the mission behind Project PRIDE SRQ, a local organization born out of the notion of unite, celebrate and support LGBTQ + people in the community. Coming up this month for Gay Pride Month is the 1st annual ONE LOVE charity event and silent art auction sponsored by Project PRIDE. Liss Art & Design announced that she will be attending the event and that she donate 20% of its proceeds from artwork sold at the event to the non-profit organization. Get out and meet the Silvers, support the cause by participating in the live auction, and learn about the series of initiatives Project PRIDE has planned for 2021 and beyond.
Sabal palm bank will provide the location for ONE LOVE, which will be held in downtown Sarasota on Saturday, June 19, 2021, from 6 to 9 p.m. In addition to the silent auction, this free event will feature merchandise, live music, snacks, wine, and an interactive art exhibit.
