History of Art from the ♥
Art from the ♥ is an initiative started by Tampa artist Mark Gonzalez. In 2015, Mark donated works to 17 local non-profit organizations. Many of the pieces were auctioned, raising more than $22K for local charities.
Art from the ♥ and the The Gallery
The Gallery is excited to welcome back Mark Gonzalez and his program. Gonzalez will donate more pieces this month to various Tampa Bay charities. READ MORE
In conjunction with Gonzalez, the Gallery at Carrollwood Cultural Center invited local artists and art collectors to donate pieces to be auctioned in an effort to raise funds for the Gallery. The Main Entrance at the Center features a collection of artwork donated by artists to benefit the Gallery of the Carrollwood Cultural Center.
Special thanks to the artists and community members who donated works for our Art from the ♥ Gallery fundraiser. Please view some of the pieces below.
