Finding the perfect painting to brighten up an empty space on the wall can be a grueling task. But even more challenging is finding a piece that is well worth every dollar spent on it. During the 12th Annual Art With Heart Auction and Gala, something tells me it’ll be easy to let go of buyer's remorse. Folks who dish out the moolah to purchase a piece of art are actually making a difference in someone else’s life, as funds raised go directly to United Family Services and the new Domestic Violence Shelter for Women and Children. That's powerful, right? Live and silent auctions will transpire through the evening, and Allison Sprock Fine Art's gallery of works will also be available for viewing. Artists exhibiting in the shindig are Felice Sharp, Louis St. Lewis, Kathy Wochele, Margaret Dyer, Roman Chatov, Tracy Sharp, Alexander Sasha Filippov, Gee Gee Collins and Anne Neilson (see her pictured painting).
