We are very pleased to announce that our honorary Art Against AIDS chairs this year are world-renowned artists Lin Emery and Skylar Fein, represented by Arthur Roger Gallery and Jonathan Ferrara Gallery, respectively. This year’s Patron Party will be a progressive party starting at Arthur Roger Gallery with hors d’oeuvres, libations, and live music and then continue at the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery for desserts, port, coffee and more live entertainment. The Patron Party will be held on Wednesday, November 28th, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
A very special evening is being planned for the Gala on December 1st, including exceptional live entertainment, food by the city’s finest restaurants, cocktails, dancing, and most importantly a silent auction of art generously donated by the region’s top artists, galleries, and fine craftsmen.
In addition to art, you can shop in our Holiday Boutique for ornaments created by local students and other small delights to complete your shopping list on the very first day of December! How easy is that? And all while supporting a worthwhile cause that matters to all of us.
We look forward to celebrating with you on December 1st, please plan to be there!
