Prism Health North Texas (PHNTX) is proud to continue the revival of their annual art show and auction at Padilla Gallery after a four-year hiatus turned into five due to COVID-19 last year. An online auction featuring local artists will begin on Wednesday, April 7, 2021, with bidding closing at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 12.
“We are thrilled about this year’s artists,” PHNTX Event Manager Terry Walker said. “Christina Yielding has been a longtime supporter and connected us to other local artists including Sarah Lynnn Williams for this year’s show. Daniel Padilla of Padilla Gallery is a wonderful friend and supporter of the community and our organization, and we so appreciate his efforts to bring changes and HIV care to North Texas.”
Proceeds from the auction will help the organization further its mission to advance the health of North Texas through education, research, prevention, and personalized integrated care. Services offered to the community include HIV/STI testing and prevention, HIV medical care, PrEP services, transgender medical care, behavioral health, pharmacy operations, and
Artworks up for auction span a variety of styles and multiple mediums, including resin, oils, and photography. Local artists featured include Daniel Padilla, Christina Yielding, Ginger Fox, Jay
Maggio, Chris Babb, Shirley Schlauser, Patrick Crowe, Sarah Lynn Williams, Adam Deviney, and more. While all artworks are available to view online, those who are members of the Red Ribbon Society are able to visit the artwork in person on April 7th and 8th.
“Our team is looking forward to seeing a few guests in person for the viewings,” Walker said. “The Art Show has been a long loved event by our staff and community and we are excited to bring it back this year after last year’s show, the first in four years, was cancelled.”
Most of the services offered at PHTNX are free. The organization is able to cover the cost of care for patients through generous donors and events such as the Online Art Auction. This support allows the organization to continue to provide services for those in need.
“I am looking forward to sharing these works of art and our work to change the lives of those in North Texas living with HIV within our community,” Walker added.
