All proceeds from the auction will go directly to Opportunity Early Childhood Education and Family Center to aid in the academic and life success of children of low-income working families.

Beginning January 15, Ron Cavalier, Founder and President of Cavalier Galleries, and New York-based artist Guy Stanley Philoche, will co-host a three-day silent auction that will benefit Opportunitys mission to empower the children of working families to achieve academic and life success through educational programs that embrace the whole child and through family programming. The auction will take place at Cavalier Gallery, located at 235 Worth Avenue, from January 15-18 where collectors and supporters will have the opportunity to bid on a one-of-a-kind painting by Philoche. Titled, “Just One of Those Days,” the mixed medium painting is worth upwards of $17,500.  Both Cavalier and Philoche will be onsite to meet with interested collectors and supporters of the charity during the three days, from 11am – 3 pm.  Appointments are highly recommended as attendance will be limited

Guy Stanley Philoche: “Art saved my Life”

“Art saved my life, I owe it a debt I’ll never be able to repay,” said Artist, Guy Stanley Philoche. “I believe it’s imperative to give-back to my community whenever possible, and that started when I sold my first painting 20+ years ago. Back then, I vowed that whenever I sell a painting, I would purchase a painting to support fellow artists. It’s always been my philosophy to give back to my community and those in need, and when this opportunity arose and it was in support of our next generation of dreamers, it was a no-brainer.”
