Seasonal Special Happenings

Drink and Buy Art in Akron

When: Fri., April 1 2011

We're not fooling: In what may be the season's most ingenious sales concept, the Harris Stanton Gallery is hosting a combination vodka tasting and art auction tonight in their Akron digs. Featuring more than 80 pieces of fine art and crafts by a host of local and international artists, the 18th annual silent auction is a fundraiser for the Akron Art Museum. The bidding began last week and concludes tonight with what we can only imagine will be a booze-fueled spending spree that puts dollars in the museum coffers and new pieces of art on walls across the region. The party runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., and admission is $10. For more information and to see select works up for auction, go to The gallery is at 2301 West Market St. in Akron. — Cicora
