CHA Hosts Pop Up Benefit Sale of Coronado Wildlife Art

Benefit Sale Features Coronado Artists Tina Christiansen and Mary Hale

Local artist Tina Christiansen has worked wonders creating a collection of her own “Coronado Wildlife” for a special Pop Up Benefit Sale at the Coronado Historical Association store. CHA welcomes everyone to stop in to the store at 1100 Orange Avenue to admire the artwork each Thursday and Friday from 11 am to 3 pm.  Pieces are available at all price points, from prints to original pieces, 8”x 8” to 16” x 20.” Tina’s paintings have been paired with beloved Coronado ceramic artist Mary Hale’s pieces, which are also available for sale to benefit CHA. There is sure to be something for everyone. All works are also available for purchase on CHA’s website, www.coronadohistory.org/shop, and local free, contactless delivery is available. 

This community art benefit sale is made possible thanks to the generosity of local artist, Tina Christiansen. All proceeds from the sale will help CHA recover losses from state-mandated COVID closures.
