Art Auction 2015: Vive la France!

Vive la France! On September 18 and 19, be transported to Provence and Paris for two nights of French festivities in support of Vashon Allied Arts. The 2015 Art Auction begins with Friday’s “Picnic in Provence” and continues with Saturday’s “Soirée à Paris”—a Francophile’s dream come true.

Throughout both evenings, enjoy games of chance, live caricature drawings, signature cocktails, and Comédie Française from Steffon Moody and his hilarious troupe of entertainers. Guests will also delight in French fare prepared by Herban Feast, accompanied by fine wines.

But the main attraction of the Art Auction is of course, l’art, boasting the finest collection outside the Louvre. Silent and live auctions feature original works by more than 130 Vashon artists, including commissioned pieces by Kathy Johnson (bead embroidery), Kim Farrell (photography) and Bill Knox (watercolor) on Friday, and Bruce Morser (pencil), Jo Ann Bardeen (quilt) and Carol Schwennesen (oil painting) on Saturday.

French-inspired attire and costumes are encouraged. Merci beaucoup to our Presenting Sponsor, John L. Scott, and thank you to our supporting sponsors, Puget Sound Energy, Point B, Thriftway, Herban Feast, OCCU, Sellen Construction, LMN Architecture, Bangasser & Associates, Seattle Distilling and TRIGG Insurance.
