TALLAHASSEE, FL -- An event this Saturday brings in local artists to share their work all to support local residents infected with or by HIV/AIDS.

The event is called Artopia which is a charity art fundraising event that benefits Big Bend Cares. Local and regional artists donate their artwork for this event, which includes a few signed and numbered limited editions.

With art and media including painting, sculpture, photography, arts and crafts, and more, Artopia has become a must-attend event, drawing approximately 1,500 participants per year.

Artopia features both silent auctions, and a rousing live auction at the end of the evening. But you don't need to be an art critic to enjoy this lively event!

Last year Artopia featured more than 300 pieces of original artwork, including oils, pastels, acrylics, photography, scenography, sculpture, pottery, ceramics, jewelry, woodwork, mixed-media and much, much more.

In addition to all of the artwork, local businesses and individuals donate gift certificates or other goodies that you can bid on.

Artopia is Saturday, June 25th starting at 7 p.m.
