Outdoor Charity Auction at The Grace Galleries

In the heart of downtown, the Grace Galleries opened in May 2020, at a time when putting joy into people's lives was needed.
Owner Gracie Neidell's international collection of vibrant, cutting-edge paintings and sculptures invokes joy. Her lifelong passion for discovering contemporary artists takes her to all corners of the globe, so it's fair to say that The Grace Galleries is all about putting a smile on your face. 
If you have visited the gallery, you might have met her beloved dog, Xiao. Gracie is well aware that not all animals receive the same love and life as fortunate as Xiao. When Gracie read about rescue dog Chance on Instagram, who lived to be 20 human years of age, and how he was saved from euthanasia by the Laguna Beach Animal Shelter, she felt compelled to act. Knowing how important pets are in our lives, and with her pup, Xiao, about to go into surgery, Gracie planned to hold a fundraiser and donate all proceeds to Laguna Beach Animal Shelter.
