SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - Members of the media and public are invited to attend Inner SOUL, a silent art auction to benefit Joshua’s House, Sacramento’s first hospice house for the terminally ill homeless on August 10, at 5-8pm.

The Second Saturday art reception will feature a silent auction of over 90 pieces of art based on SHELTERS. All proceeds from the sale of donated artwork will go to completing the building of Joshua’s House, which has received strong support from community leaders such as Congresswoman Doris Matsui, City of Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg and City Council Member Jeff Harris along with the entire City Council.

Area artists, along with Tony Natsoulas and Julia Didion, are invited to participate in this first of its kind art show here in Sacramento. Using the SHELTER as a symbol, we invite them to sculpt, paint, stitch and embellish. The results are a remarkable and beautiful art show.

Please join us for a special tribute art show to help bring awareness and raise funds for a critical new project here in Sacramento. The donated art will help open the doors to the new hospice house dedicated for the terminally ill homeless. This art show will be hosted at E Street Gallery, 1115 E Street, Sacramento. The art will be on display August 8-26 with a special reception on August 10th 5-9 pm where all artwork will be part of a silent auction
