Cultural Arts Commission’s annual fundraiser may have a new location, style and
charm this year, but the mission to promote artistic endeavors in the community
The Commission will be hosting Art Affair from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10 at the Geneva Golf Club, 831 South St. The event will celebrate the cultural arts scene in Geneva as well as the wealth of artistic talent in the City. Tickets are $50 per person and include an evening of live music, performance painting, hors d’oeuvres, a fine silent auction and a cash bar.
One of the many auction items will include “Ode to Cello,” a one-of-a-kind painted cello from renowned local artist Lorraine Oschner. Other unique auction items include a private performance by Dennis O’Brien Music and a commissioned portrait of a favorite person or pet by Karen Bordenave. During the event, artist Jan Schmuckal will use her contemporary tonalist-style to create an original oil painting to be auctioned off upon completion.
Similar to Dancing With Geneva Stars and Eat Your Art Out, this one night celebration supports the ventures of the Geneva Cultural Arts Commission throughout the year. Annual programs sponsored by the Commission include the Geneva Film Festival, Shakespeare in the Park, RiverPark Summer Concert Series, Steeple Walk, Bike + Rack = Art functional sculptures, Gimmie Shelter bus stop murals and select public art projects. The Commission also proudly supports the Geneva Foundation for the Arts, Greater Geneva Art Guild and the Orion Ensemble Chamber Group.
The Art Affair fundraiser also advances the Commission’s goal to establish a Geneva community arts center.
