The Artists’ Gallery (TAG Gallery), a Santa Monica-based artists’ cooperative, will host an art sale from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 23 to benefit the Japanese earthquake and tsunami relief efforts.

A special reception for this fundraiser is open to the public and is scheduled from 4 to 6 p.m. at TAG Gallery, 2525 Michigan Ave. D-3, Santa Monica.

Half of all proceeds from the art sale will support the U.S.- Japan Council Earthquake Relief Fund, an organization supporting the immediate relief and long-term rebuilding of the Tohoku region of Japan. One hundred percent of donations will go directly to Japanese non-governmental organizations, and funds will only be used for projects in Japan.

Visitors will have the opportunity to view all available works for sale, which include paintings and mixed media pieces from artists Cynthia Alexander and Suki Kuss. The public is encouraged to support sister coastal communities in Japan through the purchase of local contemporary art.
