Article

"The Art of Making Miracles" presented by RE/MAX of Orange Beach: Silent and Live Art Auction will be June 20, 2013. Featuring the artwork of Nall and other select artists, the event will benefit USA Children's & Women's Hospital.

Fairhope artist Fred "Nall" Hollis is a true gem in this community. A world-acclaimed artist, Nall splits his time between his art studio/museum in France and his art studio in Fairhope. Finding the beauty in what some may consider trash, Nall is a master of mixed media. His collection of miscellaneous items he's gathered at flea markets, estate sales and even dumpsters are turned into works of art sought after by many.

On June 20, Nall, along with at least 40 other artists will come together to support another gem of the community, the University of South Alabama Children's & Women's Hospital. "The Art of Making Miracles" presented by RE/MAX of Orange Beach is a silent and live art auction taking place at 'The Venue' located at 105 S. Section Street in downtown Fairhope from 6-9 p.m. Wine, champagne and heavy hors d'oeuvres will be served while guests enjoy the smooth and unique sound of Roman Street. Event tickets are $50 in advance and $65 at the door. Space is limited.

"I am ready and willing to help various charities, actually participating in about 250 per year in the USA and Europe," said Nall. "After touring USA Children's & Women's Hospital and discovering this very special place in our community, I was moved to do something," said Nall. "I'm contributing some of my work and have invited other artists to do the same. The response has been tremendous and there will be many beautiful pieces of art for auction."

The event is presented by RE/MAX of Orange Beach, a long time supporter of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and USA Children's & Women's Hospital. "We're always looking for new, unique events to support USA Children's & Women's Hospital," said P.J. Howard, RE/MAX agent and event coordinator. "We really wanted to bring an event to Baldwin County since so many patients from this area are served by Children's & Women's. After speaking with Nall, 'The Art of Making Miracles' was created and I think will be a great success."

USA Children's & Women's Hospital is a member of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. "Funds raised through the participation of our national partners in special events throughout the year stay in the local community, directly supporting the patients we serve," said Beth Mattei, Children's & Women's Development Director. "The Art of Making Miracles" will support the hospital's 200,000-square-foot pediatric tower scheduled to open later this summer.
