BATON ROUGE'S PREMIER LIVE ART AUCTION, KINETICS, RETURNS TO BRG ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11!
Baton Rouge Gallery's annual benefit fundraiser, KINETICS, returns with its fun and fast-paced live art auction on Friday, November 11 (7-11 p.m.). 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 every arts lover in town 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 Quiana Lynell and delicious refreshments courtesy of Chef Sean Rivera.
KINETICS is proudly sponsored by John G. Turner & Jerry G. Fischer, Stephen C. Riedlinger & Ann Wise, BREC, Launch Media, Coleman Partners Architects, Republic Finance, Ikon Construction, and Ogwyn Law Firm, LLC.
The KINETICS Raffle
In addition to the high-energy live auction that punctuates the evening's festivities, in 2016 the evening will again include the KINETICS Raffle. This year we'll have three packages focused on the state we all love and art experiences in three of its biggest cities. Each impressive prize package (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 will be offered for just $10 each.
A full rundown of items in each package will be announced next week!

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.
Next week we will be unveiling the 2016 KINETICS Virtual Catalog, where you'll have the chance to preview every work up for bid before the big night. Check back and get a sneak peek at all the art!
