Auction to support the arts in Baton Rouge

November 1, 2018 by  

The Baton Rouge Gallery will be holding a live art auction of close to 30 original pieces later this month.

Called KINETICS, the event is designed to celebrate the energy of contemporary art, and enable art lovers to bid on work from some from prolific local artists. Creators of the work will receive some of the proceeds of the event, while the rest of the collected money will go to supporting the mission of the gallery to advance the work of both local and national contemporary artists.

Banner printing companies can be hired so that people learn more about such local endeavors and their fundraising efforts.

There will also be live music, and food and beverages from Marcello’s Wine Bar. The first fashion show of this annual event will feature vintage fashion presented by A. Marcelite Salon, Strother Co., and Time Warp. Following the fashion show will be a major announcement of a new addition to the programming calendar of the Baton Rouge Gallery for next year.

Sponsors of the event include Hancock Whitney, Coleman Partners Architects, Carbo Landscape Architecture LLC, and Brec.

Tickets for the event are $55 for general admission and can be purchased in advance. The auction will be held on Friday, November 9 from 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm.
