Arts in Motion Studio, the nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the community and the lives of individuals with disabilities through expressive arts, will hold their largest annual community engagement and fundraising event, The Chair Affair, on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at the LaFontsee Gallery in Grand Rapids, at 833 Lake Dr. SE. Doors open at 6:00 p.m., and the live auction starts at 8 p.m.

The Chair Affair is essentially a lively celebration of community and arts highlighting the students’ work. Set around an energetic live auction of 15 chairs, repurposed to be both functional and unique pieces of art — all painted and decorated by local artists and business, including the Arts in Motion student artists — The Chair Affair creates a venue for student-created artwork to be sold, offering attendees many affordable, one-of-a-kind holiday gifts. Additionally, there will be a silent auction of unique artwork, handmade quilts, gift cards and many items donated by local businesses. Arts in Motion Studio’s signature  performance group, Living Light Dance Company, will perform throughout the night to spirit the festive occasion, at which will be served wine and a host of tasty appetizers.

The event is open to the public and free, but donations are greatly appreciated.
