Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational invites you to attend their 15th annual inaugural gala to celebrate master plein air artists on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 6 o’clock.
Guests will enjoy a sneak peek at plein air art created during the week by the 40 nationally renowned invitational artists while seeing old friends and making new acquaintances under an airy pavilion with luminous lighting, gourmet cuisine, and live music in the quintessentially unpretentious Laguna vibe at the majestic Aliso Creek Inn, Laguna Canyon, LPAPA’s new home.
Purchase tickets today at www.LagunaPleinAir.com. Your $100 contribution supports Master Artists, Local Inspiration and World Heritage of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit art organization).
The 9,000 square foot pavilion was custom built by Avalon Tent with a 29-foot ceiling, and it will cover the Aliso Creek Inn upper parking lot. Pavilion walls will showcase a week’s worth of plein air paintings by Invitational master artists. The surrounding canyon and the pavilion will be professionally lit. Valets will greet guests for convenient complimentary parking.
A Grey Goose martini bar and two additional bars will serve guests creative concoctions. Award-winning Chef Alessandro Pirozzi of Alessa will provide tastes of his culinary journey. Orchid trees provided by Laguna Nursery will adorn tables.
The Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational is celebrating its first year at Aliso Creek Inn, graciously offered by owner Mark Christie. It promises to be their swankiest event ever.
