"Don your spring hats and come to the annual gala Plein Air Brunch at The William D. Cannon Art Gallery. This unique fundraiser will be held on Sunday, May 20, 2007 in the courtyard of the Carlsbad City Library at 1775 Dove Lane. The 6th Annual Plein Air Brunch features tables decorated by local artists and guest designers in the style of famous artists from throughout the ages. This event is sponsored by the Carlsbad Friends of the Arts and is open to everyone. Proceeds from this fundraiser go toward the Gallery's Arts Education Program, Three-Part-Art. As this is the ONLY FUNDRAISER for the much visited and applauded community art gallery, contributions are needed, solicited and very much appreciated.
A few of the table designs this year will include artist interpretations of: Gustav Klimt, Monet, Degas, Cassatt and Joaquin Sorolla among others.

Each year, there is a much anticipated silent auction and raffle. New this year is a silent auction of WORKS OF ART, donated by well known artists from the surrounding San Diego county area. In addition, the artists and designers who graciously design the table settings have been given an opportunity to display their work in the adjoining gallery/library vicinity. Their work will be available to purchase, with proceeds going directly to the artist

Contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of their legal value. Tickets go on sale mid to late March. To contribute and be recognized in the event's program bulletin or for ticket information, contact the Cannon Art Gallery directly at 760-602-2021."

So check it out - you will enjoy yourself, have some wonderful food catered by Isaac's Catering (I have been to several events that they catered and the food is great!), and can help support this wonderful gallery.

PS - I am donating the champagne - come enjoy a glass or have a mimosa!
