Midsummer Infinitum @ Keystone

Keystone Art Space
Group show and fundraiser benefitting Oliver Hess
Opening reception: JULY 8, 2017 6-8pm


Keystone friend, artist, and former tenant Oliver Hess and his wife Allison need your support! Oliver has been fighting an aggressive cancer, trying everything from chemo to stem cell replacement and immunotherapy. 

Midsummer Infinitum is a group show comprised of over 30 artists, including Oliver and Allison’s friends and colleagues, as well as former and current artists of Keystone Art Space. All of the artwork in the show has been donated by these artists in the hopes to help raise some much-needed funds.

Keystone has always strived to be a supportive environment for the artists that work within it. Oliver has always brought some next-level thinking and work into the fold. Help us honor Oliver’s spirit of collaboration and group-driven projects by joining us for the opening on Saturday July 8th.

All proceeds from gallery sales will go toward Oliver and Allison’s expenses as they continue to fight Oliver’s cancer. 

Artists include:

Can't make it to the show? There are other ways you can help - one is a Gofundme campaign. Another is a Patreon page set up by Oliver and Allison. They are taking the whole experience of navigating this disease and treatment, and turning it into art and research.
