Glen Cove, NY - November 10th, 2014 - The Long Island Academy of Fine Art (LIAFA) is hosting its second annual holiday art sale and benefit.  Wrap It Up is a one-night event on December 5, 2014, from 6-8pm.  

Wrap It Up is a juried exhibition and will incorporate the work of local professional artists and advanced students.  Proceeds from the sale go to the Glen Cove Arts Council (GCAC).  Victoria Crosby, Glen Cove poet laureate, founded GCAC in 2004 to provide means for children to participate in cultural activities such as visits to museums, theater, opera and ballet, in addition to scholarships in the arts to talented youth whose families lack the financial means to help them pursue their dreams.

Ms. Crosby, GCAC president, said that "GCAC is thrilled to have LIAFA and Hersh Fine Art offering to help community youth by donating their time and talent to this art show and benefit reception."

“We look forward to continuing the relationship we have with the Glen Cove Arts Council,” said LIAFA Co-Director Rebecca Forster.  “Over the years GCAC has given many kids and adults the gift of the arts--students who otherwise would not have the opportunity to go to art camp in the summer or see The Nutcracker at the ballet.  We are privileged to help in this inspiring effort.”

LIAFA is located at 14A Glen Street, Glen Cove, NY, 11542.  For more information please call 516-590-4324, email info@liafa.com, or visit the website at www.liafa.com.
