A group of local artists are hoping people will open their hearts and wallets. On Sunday, more than 25 acclaimed artists offered up their work for a fundraising auction for the Tristesse Grief Center. The auction was held at Claussen Studio and Gallery, located at 1519 E. 15th Street in Tulsa.

The Tristesse Grief Center is a place where grieving families can share their feelings, cry and be comforted after the death of a loved one.

"They also learn healthy ways to cope and grieve,” Lisa Roth of the Tristesse Grief Center said. “Then the main thing is that there's hope and that people learn how to reinvest in the future."

The Center is a non-profit organization, and counseling is offered to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.

The Tristesse Grief Center is located at 1709 S. Baltimore Avenue, which is one block west of Boston Avenue and one block north of 18th Street. You can contact them at 918-587-1200, or visit their website, www.thetristessecenter.org.
