Not since 2001 has a blue moon fallen on Halloween, but the calendar read 1944 the last time the entire globe experienced a blue moon together. Combine this with the “extra” hour of nightfall thanks to the end of Daylight Savings Time occurring overnight, this year’s All Hallows’ Eve will be beyond exceptional and deserving of a singular event to honor the occasion. To bless the thinning of the veil, Gallery Aferro invites everyone, beginning at 12 Noon on Saturday, October 31st, to enjoy an online auction of more than 100 works by local, national and international artists who continue to persist and insist in a time of unprecedented change.
After 5 weeks, the auction will culminate in another extraordinary event for our less-than-ordinary times: a Party In A Box. This unparalleled fete brings an end to the fundraiser in a “party-together-apart” virtual jubilee with a special package delivered to patrons’ doors filled with limited edition art, a personalized music playlist, ready-to-enjoy nibbles and cocktails, and memorable prizes that the community has come to love at an Aferro annual benefit.
Party guests will order their boxes in advance, then on November 28th, join the festivities online in a counter-consumer celebration where all attendees will open their packages at 7pm and revel in the collective joy that only inclusivity, resilience and creativity can bring.
Everyone is welcome to bid in the online auction for free starting at 12 Noon on Halloween. The Party In A Box packages range from $50 to $200, and must be ordered by 12 Midnight on Halloween.
