Sometimes, aprons aren't meant to be worn.
Sometimes, they're meant to be displayed.
From 5-8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1, at Artspace1616 Gallery on Del Paso Boulevard in Old North Sacramento, local artist Susan Tonkin Riegel is hosting a unique silent auction, benefiting homeless people in Sacramento.
More than 65 local artists have created one-of-a-kind hand-painted aprons to be auctioned off. Bidding starts at $100 and all proceeds go Loaves and Fishes. From practical aprons made for wearing, to true pieces of art meant to hang on your wall, the auction will have a variety of aprons for every style.
"This one is certainly not meant to cook pasta in," said gallery owner Mima Begovic, as she showed off an apron covered in pieces of silver and gold colored metal.
At the event, you'll have the opportunity to ask the artists about what inspired their incredible works of art and snag a picture in front of your favorite apron!
"This piece was done by a renown Sacramento artist Gerald Walberg," event organizer Susan Tonkin Riegel said as she showed off an apron with oil paint on a canvas. "Then he sewed it on. It's not even part of the apron and it's called 'The Hug'."
