Art Ball 2013 with Grace & Jim Wang

Over the weekend Blake and I had the pleasure of attending the Art Ball 2013.  This prestigious event is held at Prestonwood Country Club and supports Cary Visual Art.   Cary Visual Art seeks to ensure that the Arts are ALIVE and well in our community.  My good friend, Grace Li Wang and Gifts with a Heart Gallery, hosted the formal evening event.  Grace is a famous artist and several of her own pieces of work were on display for silent auction.  Another good friend of mine, Claire Smith, had invited us to attend the Art Ball 2013 nearly a year ago; so to say we had been looking forward to this event for a while would be an understatement!  We were greeted with a glass of champagne when w arrived and viewed the art that was on silent auction in Salon C. 

Live Art Auction

 We really liked several of the pieces and enjoyed reading about the artists.  Dinner was served around 7:30pm and Prestonwood had put together a fantastic variety of food stations and an assortment of delicious foods.  There was a live band with music by The John Barker Project and Lisa York hosted the live art auction part.  The event also featured a live painting by artist Dan Nelson. The Art Ball offers a diverse collection of work from artists known across the state and nationally.  The auction featured sculptures, jewelry, pottery, wearable art and a large collection of painting, photography and mixed media.  Blake and I had a fantastic time at the event and thank you so much to Claire for inviting us to attend!  Thank you also to Lois Cozart, Owner of My Girlfriend’s Closet in downtown Cary and downtown Apex for selecting the fantastic dress that I wore!  It was a sea foam slip with a delicate lace wrap, very artsy and very beautiful! I had lots of complements on the dress, thanks so much Lois!
