Preservation Generation, a young networking and service group that supports history, nature and preservation in Delray Beach, concluded its successful three part Summer Artists Series at Cacace Fine Art Gallery Aug. 22. More than 45 guests, including Delray Beach Commissioner Tom Carney, attended the reception. Donations at the door and a silent auction garnered over $1,000 to benefit the Delray Beach Preservation Trust, a nonprofit organization that effectively advocates for the historic and architectural heritage of the city of Delray Beach.
Artist Vincent Cacace offered a giclee on canvas depicting 1940’s Atlantic Avenue named “Cruisin’ the Avenue” for the silent auction with half the proceeds from the winning bid going to the Delray Beach Preservation Trust. “We’re so thankful to this group and so proud to know young people who have an interest in history and are working to support historic preservation in Delray Beach,” said JoAnn Peart, president of the Delray Beach Preservation Trust. Attendees also enjoyed viewing the original oil paintings of Vincent Cacace, James P. Kerr and Valerie Vescovi as well as a special exhibit from the Delray Beach Historical Society called “The Art of Architecture II,” a look at the changes in Delray Beach’s architecture.
