Growing the Arts - a Surreal Dream Scape 2013 Wrap up!

Posted on | Sunday, May 5, 2013 | No Comments

Our second annual celebration was a fantastic success and we thank all who were involved!

The community thrives when there are creative outlets that can foster an appreciation and understanding of the arts. We want to be a cultural hub in Montgomery County.

This year our Gala's theme was "Growing the Arts - a Surreal Dream Scape!" In the first half of the event which took place at the gallery, an artist dressed as Bob Dylan greeted Gala goers on the sidewalk! Inside the gallery, musicians strolled, we were graced with a spontaneous sing along of "Que Sera Sera, artists dressed as the famous paintings (the Two Fridas, and Girl with the Pearl Earring) posed for photos with guests, there was a poetry read and the song "Sunday" was sung about the famous painting "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte". We also enjoyed sweet treats from Bon Appetit!

From the gallery we proceeded to the Country Club to enjoy a buffet dinner of candy cane beet salad, grilled baby romaine, mexican grouper, chicken kiev tartlets, portabella mushrooms with asparagus, fabergé egg potatoes and yummy cupcakes! The homemade chocolate turtles at each place setting were such a nice ending to the meal. Abstract music played while the silent auction waited on bidders. We enjoyed the wearable art items worn by select artists which included the handmade hearts worn by the two Fridas! Our silent auction was a hit and the large surreal flower blooms centerpieces went home with the highest bidders as well!

The night was a treat and we thank all for the support. Let us know if you enjoyed the night and also how we can improve.
