About Our Auction
Thank you for your interest in the third annual heART Show and auction, organized by Rustic Roots restaurant in Shelburne Village, Vermont. This show of over 90 heARTworks by talented artists is on display at our restaurant through March 31st. The artists have created these original pieces and are donating their time and sales to benefit a great cause in Burlington, Vermont, Outright Vermont. When you purchase a heART, the funds will go go directly to helping this wonderful organization in serving over 2,100 youth in a year and up to 5,000 educators, families, and community members overall state-wide.
Now here's where you come in: consider this perfect opportunity to look beyond the flowers and candy, and surprise your sweetie with a unique Valentine’s Day gift while supporting local artists, a small business, and a great cause all in one! (Just please be aware that if you are purchasing as a Valentine's Day gift, your recipient will have to wait until the show is over to receive it physically).
