Liss Design Artwork to Donate Proceeds at Project Pride SRQ's One Love Charity Event

The Giving Coast

A self-taught Swiss-born artist, Alissa "Liss" Silvers, may always call Münchwilen home, but she has since transplanted to Sarasota to continue her works of art that are now displayed in both private and public collections in the USA and Switzerland. The backbone of her creations reflects “an intimate expression of the unique individuals she has met and the diverse places in which she has lived and traveled.” 

Known for her combination of abstract art, brand identity designs and evocative portrait illustrations, her colorful and expressive art naturally aligns with the mission behind Project PRIDE SRQ , a local organization born out of the notion to unite, celebrate and support the LGBTQ+ people in the community. Coming up this month for Gay Pride Month is the 1st annual ONE LOVE charity event and silent art auction, sponsored by Project PRIDE. Liss Art & Design announced she will be featured at the event and will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the painting pictured above if sold, and 20% of her proceeds from other artwork sold at the event to the nonprofit.

"I am a big supporter of Project Pride SRQ's work in the LGTBQ+ community," Silvers shares. "I was raised to embrace diversity and love in any form which is reflected in my vibrant artwork. I am excited to team up with them to unite the community and celebrate diversity and acceptance: That is One Love!"

Come out and meet Silvers, celebrate Gay Pride Month and get to know the series of initiatives Project PRIDE has planned for 2021 and beyond. Sabal Palm Bank will be providing the venue for ONE LOVE, held in Downtown Sarasota on Saturday, June 19, 2021, from 6pm-9pm. In addition to the silent art auction, this free event will feature merchandise, live music, snacks, wine and an interactive art exhibit.
