Do you like art but aren’t sophisticated enough to tell one artist from the next? Do you like what you see, but don’t understand all why all those stuffy critics fawn over a certain piece? Well, you are in luck! The fourth annual Secret Artworks Show takes place this Friday, November 20 in the grand ballroom at the Westin Hotel starting at 5pm and it’s made for people just like you!
The fundraiser benefits ArtWorks programming and features approximately 1,500 5×7 pieces of art from all walks of the art world. There will be some pieces from well known professionals, some from students, and some from everywhere in between. But how do you know which is which? Well, you don’t, and that is the fun of it.
You see, the ‘secret’ behind the show is in the fact that the artist’s identity is kept secret until the piece has been purchased. The group is expecting about 1,000 folks to show up and race through the show while enjoying cocktails, hors d’oeuvers and live music starting at 5pm this Friday. While admission is fairly steep at $100 per entry ($125 per couple), each entry purchased guarantees that you walk away with one of the pieces of art on display.
Is the cost a little prohibitive for your pocketbook? Is your social agenda a little too busy for a Friday night art show? Well, at the very least you can browse the entries virtually by heading here.
