What: Art on the Avenue 25th anniversary art party

Where: Winter Street Studios

PC Moment: With close to 500 works of art from more than 250 local artists, there were plenty of show-stopping moments throughout Art on the Avenue’s two-evening event as a total of more than 850 guests poured in for a look-see and art purchases. Proceeds of close to $300,000 will continue Art on the Avenue‘s efforts to develop affordable homes for artists and strengthen communities while also giving back to the artists that continue to make the event possible.

Guests attending the Thursday night preview party were entertained by Two Star Symphony, self-billed as the “most unusual music ensemble” and were fed with light bites from Lemond Kitchen. Art lovers attending Saturday’s auction and party were entertained by Losty Los of The Waxaholics, who spun tunes throughout the evening.

Guest juror Danielle Burns Wilson of Project Row Houses selected approximately 50 pieces of work as her favorites from this year’s submissions. They were hung in the juried gallery, where she discussed her thought process and revealed her picks for first, second and third prize awards. First prize was awarded to Danyelle Lakin, second prize went to Marlo Saucedo and third prize was taken by Dominique Silva.
