On Friday, November 7, 2014, 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 went directly to the local and regional artists that make up the gallery's artist member roster with the remaining funds going to support its facilitating of over a dozen exhibitions annually and numerous well-attended cultural programs.
The night's festivities, in addition to the live auction and raffle, will include a fun performance from the energetic funk/jazz band Cafe au Lait and delicious refreshments courtesy of Stroubes Seafood & Steaks.
KINETICS is proudly sponsored by John G. Turner & Jerry G. Fischer, The Baton Rouge Water Company, Lamar Advertising, Vistage, Coleman Partners Architects, Ma Maison of Beaute, Republic Finance, Launch Media and Iberia Bank.
The New KINETICS Raffle
In addition to the high-energy live auction that punctuated the evening's festivities, this year the benefit will again include the KINETICS Raffle. Replacing the silent auction of years past, a series of three impressive prize packages (valued at over $1,000 each) will be raffled off, each one providing the winner with new experiences and memories they'll never forget. Raffle tickets were purchased for just $5 each.
The KINETICS Live Auction
Of course, the highlight of KINETICS year-in and year-out is the live art auction that once again features over 30 original works of art from the gallery's artist members and includes art of all sizes and media including paintings, glass, photography, printmaking, collage and mixed media works. Bidding opens at just $100 for each piece.
