Arty party for Alamo study

Paintings, photographs and perhaps a sculpture or two by professional artists will be available for attractive prices at the "Art from 94507" show on the evening of Friday, Sept. 5, at a private home on the west side of Alamo.

The evening, which precedes the popular annual Alamo Music and Wine Festival in Alamo Plaza on Saturday, is the final fundraiser of the Alamo Community Foundation to benefit the state studies of Alamo incorporation, which was presented Aug. 7.

"Lots of art to choose from, great food, good wine and drinks, and lively people," said Ellen Sanchez, vice president of operations, who has organized the event. "The setting is beautiful, and we can expect the weather to cooperate."

Tickets, at $50 per person, are on sale now from Nancy Huseby at 838-1277. The evening begins with a preview at 5 p.m. followed by an auction at 7:15 p.m.

The foundation is a nonprofit corporation to raise tax-deductible contributions to pay the $200,000 cost of the studies, which are available at
