For Immediate Release:
(Boulder, CO) – TRU Hospice Thrift Shop, located at 5565 Arapahoe Avenue in Boulder, is collaborating with Mary Williams Fine Arts at 5311 Western Avenue in Boulder to offer “TRU Colors Art Sale” from June 26-30, 2017. Opening night is Friday, June 23rd and will include a reception with refreshments, best selection on limited-edition prints and original works of art, and door prizes.
Using donations of wall art, sculptures, and blown glass from the thrift shop and community at large, art enthusiasts can add to their collection. The professionally vetted art will be sold with 100% of the proceeds benefiting TRU Hospice.
A limited-edition print by popular culture icon and artist Peter Max will be one of the featured pieces in the sale. His bold colors, uplifting images and an uncommon artistic diversity have touched almost every phase of American culture and inspired many generations. Max’s signature style of cosmic characters meticulously painted against bold, vibrant colors was among the most influential graphic sources of the 1960s.

Volunteers at the TRU Hospice Thrift Shop work to identify items for eBay that attract a higher price than items in the shop. Dan Gleeson, former art teacher at Boulder High School observes, “We are amazed at the quality of the items donated to benefit the work of TRU Hospice. I’m so excited to pull together a collection for sale at Mary Williams Fine Arts—it will be a great opportunity for us.”
TRU Hospice Thrift Shop opened in 2005 to offer a depository for estate items to help families who have lost a loved one. When families feel burdened by possessions, it’s a gift to have TRU Hospice help find a new home for the furniture and household goods. Collectibles, books, furniture, art, and sporting goods, among other contributions, are accepted daily at the shop in east Boulder.
TRU Hospice Thrift Shop seeks volunteers for 4-hour shifts each week. More than 100 volunteers offer their services to the shop and find a great sense of community in the work. Carol Thompson, Volunteer Coordinator adds, “We are a warm, friendly place to give back to our community and have fun at the same time.” Call Carol at 303.605.5353 to learn more about volunteer opportunities.
