*BUY NOW* Art Auction Preview & Artist Reception
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 13th, 2012, 7-10 pm
Exhibition dates: October 10-25, 2012
We are hosting Lit Crawl from 6-7pm. Come early for readings curated by Amol Ray.
Root Division presents a chance to see what all the Auction fuss is about. Come see the art we'll be auctioning off at the event on October 25th, including work by over 100 established and emerging local artists. The Artists' Reception is free to attend and almost as fun as the ticketed event. And in case you’d rather not have to bid against your best friend for your favorite piece of art, everything will be available for purchase during the Preview at 110% of the retail price.

ABOUT ROOT DIVISION:
Root Division is an arts & arts education non-profit located in the Mission District of San Francisco. Root Division's mission is to improve appreciation and access to the visual arts by connecting personal inspiration and community participation. We provide subsidized studio space to working artists in exchange for their service in creating shared learning opportunities for the community. Artists develop creatively and professionally by teaching art to underserved youth, leading adult education classes, and producing exhibitions that showcase local emerging artwork. By combining multiple opportunities for creative exchange, Root Division cultivates an artistic ecosystem that enriches life throughout the Bay Area.
Root Division is supported in part by grants from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, National Endowment for the Arts / ArtWorks, Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation, Grants for the Arts: San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund, San Francisco Arts Commission / Cultural Equity Grants, Crescent Porter Hale Foundation, Zellerbach Family Foundation, W A Gerbode Foundation, Art4Moore, and Bill Graham Memorial Fund.
