This is a special Milestone 20th Anniversary Celebration that you do not want to miss! We’re bringing back many of the artists that participated in the first Invitational in 1999 plus our top “best in show” award winners and more! Plan to join the celebration — be part of the tradition!
Spend an enchanting evening under the stars with 50 of the nations top award winning artists, surrounded by art lovers and some of the finest plein air fine art you will find anywhere! Our 20th anniversary gala will be a special celebration at our new Festival of Arts “home” on Saturday October 13th, 7:00pm to 10:30pm (*VIP Gala Ticket holders receive early access for a private VIP reception starting at 6pm*). Must be 21 or older to attend. Cocktail attire suggested (this is an outdoor evening event, so wraps recommended).
Gala attendees will have the first*, and possibly the only, opportunity to view the entire collection of artwork created during the week, and guests will have the first opportunity to purchase award winning paintings in advance of the general public*. The artists will be exhibiting during the Gala what they consider to be their three best plein air paintings created during the week, presented for judging and prize consideration — over $40,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded, with the top prize being the coveted $10,000 “Best in Show” award judged by our panel of experts! And you will be the first to know the award winners! In addition to the Gala exhibition, the artists will have additional artwork created during the week, as well as a selection of paintings from their personal collection, available for purchase in the “Library” during the Gala. The paintings showcased in the 2018 collectible Invitational Art Catalogue will also be exhibited and available for purchase at the Gala.
