The show opens November 14 and runs through December 18, with a reception for the artist on Saturday, November 14, from 4 – 6 pm. This event is free and open to the public.

Be Here Now: The Black Velvet Art Party, 11/7/09

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Elvis.
Afro love.
Pink Panther on the can.

Yes, we all love the great classics of black velvet painting, don’t we?

Well, on Saturday (November 7) you can get in on the ground floor of a whole new generation of black velvet artists, when the Lake George Arts Project throws its annual fundraiser, the Black Velvet Art Party, at the Roaring Brook Ranch in Lake George. Proceeds from the event help fund the Lake George Arts Project and its gallery exhibition series.

Expect to see more than 40 out-of-the-ordinary, off-the-wall pieces of original art that incorporates black velvet art. And, of course, the party always features some over-the-top black velvet costumes, as well.

The party features a silent auction of original black velvet art, a limbo contest, psychic readings, art and fashion awards, and live music for your dancing pleasure by Pop Rock Circus.

The theme for this year’s bash is “Fly,” and among the many raffle prizes are an airplane flight over Lake George, a helicopter ride and a hot air balloon ride. Tickets are available at the door for $25.00, which includes a finger food buffet.

Trophy artists (left to right): Lisa Earl, Lonnie Lawrence, Laura McGrew, Susan Nichols, Joy Muller-McCoola, Gary McCoola, Brooke Witham, Laura Von Rosk.

These trophies will be presented at the Black Velvet Art Party for Art and Fashion Awards. Trophy artists (left to right): Lisa Earl, Lonnie Lawrence, Laura McGrew, Susan Nichols, Joy Muller-McCoola, Gary McCoola, Brooke Witham, Laura Von Rosk.
