The fun and whimsical work of many local artists will be featured at “furnARTure,” a benefit for The Studio at Living Opportunities. We’ve invited local artists to “recycle” traditional furniture, using their creative skills to turn dozens of pieces into “master” pieces for this signature event. The resulting blend of art and furniture becomes furnARTure, and will be auctioned to support The Studio at Living Opportunities during a lovely afternoon of wine, hors d’oeuvres and live music, at The Inn at the Commons in downtown Medford.

What:     furnARTure, the seventh annual auction to benefit The Studio at Living Opportunities

When:   Sunday, September 11th, 2016, from 2-5 p.m.

Where:  The Inn at the Commons, 200 North Riverside Ave., Medford

Who:      This year’s event will feature furniture artwork by many of the region’s top local artists. Top artists include: Gina Savage, Randall Grealish, Krissy Milner, Cathy Dorris, Anna Elkins, and Dan Mish.

Why:   The Studio at Living Opportunities, provides workshops, instruction and
events to promote independence, individuality, creativity and an income for artists with a wide range of disabilities. The Studio strives to share our artists’ unique talents, through the belief that art is a common thread that joins us all.

Living Opportunities is a non-profit organization that has been assisting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our community since 1974.
