BATON ROUGE'S PREMIER LIVE ART AUCTION, KINETICS, RETURNS TO BRG ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13!
On Friday, November 13, 2015 (7 - 11 pm), Baton Rouge Gallery's annual benefit fundraiser, KINETICS, returns with its fun and fast-paced live art auction as well as the KINETICS Raffle. Located inside BREC's historic City Park (1515 Dalrymple Drive), the event celebrates the energy of contemporary art, specifically in Louisiana's capital city, providing a chance for arts supporters, business leaders and community members to share their passion for the visual arts while bidding on more than 30 original works from some of the region's most talented and prolific artists.
A portion of the proceeds from the event go directly to the local and regional artists that make up the gallery's artist member roster with the remaining funds going to support the gallery's facilitating of a dozen exhibitions annually and numerous well-attended cultural programs.
Get your tickets for the big night! ($40, $30 for BRG members.)
The night's festivities, in addition to the live auction and raffle, will include a fun performance from the energetic soul/funk band Lucy & the Gamblers and delicious refreshments courtesy of Stroubes Seafood & Steaks.
