Local auto repair shop Star Motors is celebrating the role the arts play in our community by presenting Star Gallery’s Annual Art Closing on Saturday, Jan. 24, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Attendees can enjoy light refreshments and appetizers while meeting featured artist Donna Butnik, whose still lifes, landscapes and portraits grace the walls of Star Motors. A portion of the proceeds from the artwork sold during the event will be donated to the Bright Future Foundation of America, a non-profit organization promoting non-violence and supporting victims of domestic violence by encouraging survivors to rebuild and empower their lives with workshops and education. Star Motors is located at 32955 Calle Perfecto, San Juan Capistrano. For more information or to RSVP, call 949.443.1970 or email emma@star-motors.com.
