The closing Gala will take place in the new event tent at The Preserve at Chocorua.
Join the artists, art lovers, collectors under the beautiful Sperry Tent at the Preserve to celebrate the week of plein air painting! Gala attendees will enjoy complimentary locally prepared hors d’ oeuvres and wine from Tamworth’s Whippletree Winery all while listening to the lively sounds of local musicians, The Bongolians.
The Gala will be a chance to view the entire collection of artwork created during the week and an opportunity support artists, local businesses and nonprofit organizations. Gallery walls will feature masterpieces from the week, including a fundraising wall of donated works to benefit the “Crayons Matter” Marcia C. Abbott Scholarship Fund. All proceeds from the “Crayons Matter” artwork sales directly benefit Art Works in Chocorua for children’s art education and each painting can be purchased for a minimum of $100 on Saturday evening.
The Gala wraps up with the presentation of awards presented to artists for Best in Show, 2nd Place, People’s Choice and Most Improved.
