Art About People Exhibit Benefits Opportunity Village May 12, 2016 09:27

LAS VEGAS (May 6, 2106) Shapiro & Sher Group, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties and Emerald Homes have teamed up to present ‘Art About People,’ an exhibit of original artwork from Opportunity Village artists. More than 100 exhibits are on display and available for public preview and purchase now through May 31. Proceeds will benefit Opportunity Village, Las Vegas’ Favorite Charity, a local non-profit that serves nearly 3,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities annually.

Pieces on display in the ‘Art About People’ exhibit average $100 in price and can be viewed daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Sandstone Edge, a semi-custom luxury home collection by DR Horton’s Emerald Homes. Sandstone Edge is located at 1644 Quartz Ledge Court in Southwest Las Vegas near the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Buffalo Drive.

“We really enjoy working with Opportunity Village and have auctioned their artwork at events in the past to raise money for their programs and services,” said Ivan Sher, principal of Shapiro & Sher Group. “Our parent company, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties, is also a corporate supporter and holds regular fundraising and volunteer events to help this incredible organization.” Sher’s business partner, Florence Shapiro, and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties’ CEO Mark Stark both serve on the Opportunity Village Foundation Board of Directors.

‘Art About People’ kicked off April 30 with an opening reception at the Sandstone Edge model homes that raised $5,000 and Sher said he expects at least $5,000 more to be raised during the exhibit. “These are truly gifted artists who have created pieces anyone would be proud to display in their home or business,” said Sher. “It’s an easy way to support the organization and bring a little more style and color in your life!” The purchase price of the artwork is also tax-deductible.
