WMG 22nd ANNIVERSARY GALA: REFLECTIONS
WMG's annual Gala in celebration of 22 years of support for women artists will be held on Friday, April 25th at Ignite Glass Studios, 401 N Armour St, Chicago, IL 60642.
The theme is “Reflection” and we’ll celebrate co-founder and Executive Director, Beate Minkovski, who will retire this year. The live auction offers three great artworks, a Dinner Party for Eight by Cali Bergold, an Instant Wine Cellar, and an Architectural River Tour for Eight donated by James Pinzker. Performer Patty Elvis will be our auctioneer!
The silent auction features paintings, photographs, pottery, sculpture, jewelry, gift certificates to theaters, restaurants, and various services, including encaustic lessons by Jenny Learner, and much more. We’ll have an art raffle with three prizes: a painting by Suzanne Keith Loechl, a b/w photograph by Pete O’Connell, and a ceramic piece by Mary O'Connell.
Delicious appetizers are provided by our favorite catering company, Amazing Edibles, and Cabot Creamery has donated an assortment of gourmet cheeses. We’ll have an open bar, a musical performance by Patty Elvis, and a glass-blowing demo with the resulting creation to be donated to the silent auction.
