On Saturday, December 1, the Missouri Coalition for the Environment will auction off art from more than 50 regional painters, sculptors, woodworkers, photographers, and artists who work in an invigorating range of styles – from the representational to the abstract -- with recycled materials and natural matter as well as with more traditional media.
The event is called Art for an Endangered Planet – or eARThworks, for short – and is the triennial fundraiser for a citizen-member-directed organization that has been working to protect waterways and wetlands, improve air quality, and defend open space and wildlife around the state since 1969.

On December 1 at 6 p.m., fabulous appetizers from local restaurants, artists and their work, and the lush sounds of Silk Pajamas will fill the modern, light-bathed Gallery at the Regional Arts Commission (RAC), 6128 Delmar Boulevard in the East Loop. Donated art on the walls will be auctioned off, mostly in a silent auction. Select pieces will be set aside for a live auction emceed by Y98’s Guy Phillips. Cost to attend is $35. Drinks are $2.
