25th Annual Alive at the Bluebird Auction

Two special items have been donated to Alive Hospice to be auctioned during the 25th Annual Alive at the Bluebird, a special series of shows at the famed Bluebird Cafe benefiting the life-changing work of Alive Hospice. A beautiful original oil painting and an Epiphone acoustic guitar autographed by all artists and songwriters performing during the month-long series will be available for bidding online and in person at the Bluebird.

The work of acclaimed artist Deann Hebert’s Angel series is currently gracing the walls of the Alive Hospice Nashville residence, and she is donating her “Wings To Fly” original oil on canvas painting for the Alive at the Bluebird auction. The painting measures 3’x3′ and the image can also be seen on marketing materials and t-shirts for the 25th Annual Alive at the Bluebird series.

I’m honored to partner with Alive Hospice to help raise funds so they can continue providing loving care to people with life-threatening illnesses, support to their families, and service to the community in a spirit of enriching lives,” said Hebert. “I know many people call Alive their ‘Angels.’ I’m excited to make prints of my art available to supporters, to add beauty to their homes, or to give as a gift–to help support Alive. I appreciate that they have given me an opportunity to let my passion serve a purpose!

Interested bidders can visit to view the painting and her art as well as purchase an item. “A percentage of every purchase will go directly to Alive Hospice to support those who need us most,” said Anna-Gene O’Neal, President/CEO of Alive Hospice. “We are grateful to have this opportunity with such a fantastic and generous artist.”

The Epiphone FT-100 acoustic guitar was donated by Earl E. Owens, a prominent Nashville manager, producer, promoter and public relations executive working with some of the top names in country music through the 70s and 80s. He was cared for by Alive Hospice earlier this year and arranged for Epiphone to donate the guitar for Alive at the Bluebird.

Alive Hospice will be enlisting auction website Bidding Owl to accept bids for both the painting and guitar online, and both online and in-person bidders can bid on the items at the Bluebird Cafe on the last night of the series. More details will be available at
