The Art 4 Shelter benefit for Simpson Housing Services is an exhibit and sale of original artworks on paper by artists, both emerging and established. Featuring over 1,000 original works of art on paper,  you can easily go home with a 5″ x 7″ for $30 each or an 8″ x 10″ from selected artists for $150. The works are only signed on the back, so the artist remains a surprise until the art is purchased—you might recognize some big names or get an up-and-comer—and new pieces are hung as others are bought. 7-9 PM. Free. —Tracy Oxford
