Notable Moments: Free Arts supporters and art collectors gathered on a cool October night for the return of an in-person Art From the Heart auction at a beautiful private home with stunning views. The residence was cleared of furniture so guests could wander though the stunning displays of artwork while enjoying cocktails and light bites. While some pieces went for top dollar early, the final moments of the auction were quite exciting as bidding closed, raising funds for vital art therapy programs for abused children served by Free Arts.
