Chali-Rosso Art Gallery: "From the HeART" Art Auction at Hycroft Mansion, May 3, 2007

From Pablo Picasso to Raymond Chow - Art Auction in Vancouver

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 11, 2007) - The "From the HeART" Art Auction will be held at the University Women's Club of Vancouver at Hycroft Mansion on May 3, 2007. The auction is hosted by the Chali-Rosso Art Gallery and Auctions in Motion. A percentage of each piece of art sold will be designated to the charity of choice by the purchaser. The auction will offer original graphic works from world-renowned European masters and a variety of works from BC artists.

The show organizers have launched similar events in Europe in previous years. In 2006, the Vancouver auction sold over 60% of works. Show hosts anticipate 75% of the art will be sold this year.

The Chali-Rosso Gallery is located on South Granville. The gallery specializes in European original lithographs and etchings by such masters as Rembrandt, Picasso, Miro, Dali, Chagall and Matisse. They are the only gallery in Canada offering these artists as a group. Owner, Susanna comments, "We are offering a unique opportunity to donors and charities. This auction provides a new avenue for charities to receive financial benefit without any responsibility or effort on their part," she adds.

Oree Gianacopoulos of Auctions in Motion, is the auctioneer. Oree has seven years experience in art auctions, principally on cruise ships. Oree states, "Selling art in a gallery setting is quite different from the fast pace of auctions. Excitement builds rapidly and serious buyers must bid quickly to ensure their purchase. However, the buyer has much more control over the purchase price," she comments.

Date: Thursday, May 3, 2007

Time: Preview: 6 - 7 pm. Live Auction: 7 - 9 pm.

Location: University Women's Club at Hycroft, 1489 McRae Ave, Vancouver, BC
