Special Raffle Fundraiser Event For Two Worthy Artists – Help Save Their Home!

For over 20 years, Anthony Burks and Trina Slade-Burks have supported Palm Beach County artists through their company ATB Fine Artists & Designers. They have curated and hosted art shows, giving emerging artists the opportunity to sell their works. The African Diaspora Exhibition at the Armory Art Center and later at Palm Beach State College brought large numbers of viewers from beyond this area. Their CONTINUUM Gallery was one of the highlights of Art Palm Beach/Art Synergy for the past two years.  The Rickie Report shares an opportunity for a WIN-WIN:  You get to choose which art-related raffle items you want to bid on.  The money raised helps the Burks family Save Their Home!  Attention Art Lovers:  This is an amazing opportunity to purchase fine art and fine crafts!  Read the details for this fundraiser at the Brewhouse Gallery on  Saturday, May 23rd.

You would be hard-pressed to find an artist in Palm Beach County that has not benefitted from the hard work of Trina and Anthony Burks. Unfortunately, the Burks family now needs our help. Due to a job loss and unexpected medical issues, they are now at risk of losing their family home.

By the end of May, they may have to leave the house which has served as their business office, studio, and home for many years. Artists have asked how they can help Trina and Anthony. Their friend Suzanne Redmond has decided to host a fundraiser for their benefit so that we can gather their friends and fellow artists together to show our support.

Anthony and Trina Burks, throughout their difficult journey, continue to work with emerging and established professional artists in our area.  From banner painting on Clematis Street, to hosting Artists Lunches and Lectures (which bring professionals in the business and legal world together with artists), they continue to give of themselves.  Tonight is the Opening Night of their collaboration with Barbara Cheives.
