Featured at the 2009 Bike Art Spectacular 
November 7th in San Diego

Bicycle art from all over the world will be on display and for sale at the 2009 Bike Art Spectacular, a fundraising event for Kimberlee's Bikes for Kids. The event will take place on Saturday, November 7th from 6-9 pm at San Diego's Quilt Art Vision Gallery.

Jennifer Garant, a well-known artist from Palm Desert, Calif., says: "I received an email from Dan of KBK asking if I could donate a painting for their art auction. As I started to read about Kimbelee's life and loves it touched me very much only to go into full tears hearing about her passing in March 2008 from brain cancer. Every child that KBK touches with its bike give-away program provides these children hope in sometimes bleak situations. I do not think that there is anything more important than to give the gift of joy and hope. I love the saying: 'No one ever dies as long as there is someone to remember them'. For me the question was not can I donate art but how could I not donate."

The Bike Art Spectacular will feature bicycle-themed art from Israel, England, Australia, Canada, and the U.S. The art will be displayed and sold at the reception on November 7th. In addition, the reception will include a silent auction, door prizes, drinks and appetizers. Remaining art not sold at the reception will be featured in a special eBay auction from November 9-16.

The donated art will feature original paintings, limited-edition prints, hand-embellished giclees, sculptures, photographs, recycled art, T-shirts, jewelry and cards which carry retail values from $5 to over $5,000.

"We're gearing up for a fantastic event, says Dan Gindling, President of Kimberlee's Bikes for Kids. "The artists have responded with lots of great bicycle art. It's going to be a really fun evening."
