PELHAM, NY -- This Saturday, Nov. 5th at 7:30PM, one of Pelham's most beloved traditions, Pelham Art Center's Studio Cafe, has added some tantalizers to the already popular casual fundraiser, insuring that while you raise money for free arts programs for the community, you will also have a great time! First, the theme: Arts and Craft Beer Fest – one of several celebrations this year of the rich variety of arts and burgeoning craft beer businesses in Westchester County, supported by ArtsWestchester, Taste NY, Half Time Beverage, and Brooklyn Brewery. Thirty generous local restaurants are contributing their specialties. The live painting performance group EYE will be painting to the rhythms of live jazz by WORKS. Bidders can take home artwork painted by EYE.
A headliner auction item is Bayside Travel's offering of a luxury 3-night ocean-view stay at Cabo San Lucas’ 5-star The Resort at Pedregal. A carefully curated selection of affordable original art by exhibited known and emerging artists is also a standout this year. From the serious collector to a first-timer art buyer, it's a can’t-miss opportunity. And back by popular demand, a Creative Cocktail, with music, art, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres; and a collection of exciting, unique experiences including sports tickets, cultural events, children's fun, beauty and travel.
So while you generously support the arts, lift a glass of craft beer, dig into a treasure trove of savory offerings, enjoy the live jazz and painting and indulge in your favorite auction items.
This year’s Studio Café is co-chaired by Lisa Koonce and Mary Beth Fisher. Proceeds from Studio Café’s Arts & Craft Beer Fest will enrich the entire community with free arts experiences, exhibitions and events, art scholarships for all ages, after-school art programs in underserved communities, and
free folk arts cultural experiences for everyone.
Studio Café's Presenting Sponsor is McClellan Sotheby's International Realty. The event is also generously supported by Platinum Sponsor Meridian Risk Management/Joan Solimine Real Estate, Gold Sponsor UBS Private Wealth Management and Silver Sponsors Bayside Travel and Arteffects.
