SACRAMENTO, CA - This Saturday as part of "Second Saturday" in Downtown, Sacramento one local salon will be opening its doors to raise money for a local disabilities center.
Space07 Salon is currently displaying artwork done by artists of Southside Art Center, an organization that assists disabled adults in the Sacramento area.
All money raised by the sell of the pieces will go back to benefit the Center.
Currently the walls of the salon are covered with hundreds of art pieces ranging in price from eight-dollars up to one-thousand-dollars.
Salon owner Ken Schultz says he was approached by the Southside Art Center and had no idea the pieces would be so sophisticated.
"I look at some of these pieces and can't believe they weren't done by professional artists," says Schultz. "People that come in and look at the pieces can't believe the quality of art and the unbelievable price."
Schultz says he plans on replenishing pieces as they sell, and will display Southside art for the next two months.
