A new addition to the TAF is a Live Auction on Saturday, April 10th from 7:00-7:45pm.
Items to be auctioned include:
"Movement in Light": a 30 x 40 acrylic on wood painting by the internationally acclaimed artist, Yankel Ginzburg. Mr. Ginzburg’s lifetime achievements are nearly as colorful as his paintings. The common thread to all of the Russian-born, Israeli-educated artist’s paintings is a sense of hope.

With a reputation for eclectic collections of extraordinary works, the Temple Arts Festival enjoys national renown and an enthusiastic following. The collectible works of this year's artists have been displayed in museums, galleries and juried exhibitions nationwide. Many are rarely available in the Nashville area, and over half of the artists are new to the event this year. Featured for sale are works from such well knowns as Sylvia Hyman.
Loyal patrons and first-timers alike will find non-financial assets to invest in and delightful works of art or jewelry to brighten their lives without breaking their budgets. Art and jewelry will be priced from $50 to thousands of dollars, with work appealing to all types of collectors.
Donations from the net proceeds of the Temple Arts Festival will be made to Congregation Ohabai Sholom, Nashville, Tennessee’s oldest and largest Jewish congregation. Because The Temple is a 501(c)(3) organization, sales tax will not be charged. Up to 40 percent of artwork purchased may qualify as a charitable donation, but patrons are advised to consult with a certified public accountant or tax advisor.
HOW TO GET IN EARLY
Advance Purchase Certificates are available for early entry into the art exhibition & sale.
The certificates are recommended for those willing to commit to a purchase in advance, in exchange for the opportunity to browse the exhibition and make their selections before the general public is admitted.
Certificates can be purchased from $125 per person and up, all of which will be applied toward the purchase of art and/or jewelry at the 2010 Temple Arts Festival. For details, call The Temple at 615-352-7620. Gift Certificates are also available.
