What is Art Alive!
It’s an awesome benefit for AIDS Alabama where you get to watch not one, but eight local artists create original artwork on site.
There’s a silent auction where you can bid on the pieces that are being created. There will be a gallery where you can purchase other already completed artwork in the gallery.
Your $50 ticket also includes complimentary food (thank you, El Barrio!), as well as complimentary beer and wine. Cheers!
There’ll also be music from the Matthew Carroll Band.
Proceeds benefit the many programs and services of AIDS Alabama.

Watch these folks create art on site during the event that you can bid on in the silent auction.

Here at Bham Now, we’re such big fans of Chris Davis we featured him and Draw Dog Pet Portraits as one of five Birmingham artists you need to know.
If you are a fan of the female form, you’re gonna love Claire Godbee’s work. Seriously.
Jon Osborne‘s contemporary art pieces are vibrant, colorful and evocative.
Long fascinated by Birmingham scenes, Michael Molay creates print inspired by his (and our) hometown.
Paul Cordes Wilm
You can find Paul Cordes Wilm‘s art all over this city. Watch him in action at Art Alive!
Roger Torbert’s show is currently up at Filter Coffee Parlor. If you can’t make it there, check out Broken Pieces Art here to get an idea of what he might create at the event.
Seems like Birmingham has an insatiable appetite for pet portraits. This is good news for watercolor artist Tim Blanton. In addition to pets, he has an affinity for beautiful things outdoors. Poppies, herons, you name it.
Also, Art Alive! has a gallery
Eric Johnson Art creates paintings, sculpture, and metal art. You’ll be able to find some of his work in the gallery. There will be jewelry from Hunter Bell Art, too.
