The Black Velvet Art Party is back!
The annual fundraiser for the Lake George Arts Project will be held from 7-11pm on Saturday (November 22) at the Georgian Resort in Lake George. Proceeds from the event help fund the Lake George Arts Project and its year-round Courthouse Gallery art exhibitions.
Celebrating its 26th year, the Black Velvet Art Party – an invigorating gathering of the local art scene – is renowned for its out-of-the-ordinary presentation of black velvet art and over-the-top apparel. The party features a silent auction of original black velvet art, a limbo contest, art & fashion awards and dance music by Big Fez & the Surfmatics.
This year’s theme is “Gnarly!” In keeping with the playful nature of the party, award categories include Tres Tacky, Svelte, Velveluminous (the brightest), Velvelicious (most delicious), Velveeta (the cheesiest) and Velveluptuous (the sexiest.) Award winners will be presented with wildly decorated trophies.
Tickets are $25 and will be available at the door.
