Arts Alliance presents A Magical Evening of Art
Residents will have a chance to soak up some art and give something back when The Arts Alliance Center of Clear Lake presents A Magical Evening of Art.
During the center's gala on Saturday, Feb. 20, guests will have an opportunity to view J. Pamela Culpepper's Renaissance Men photography exhibit, which features portraits of men who have made significant contributions to the community.
There also will be a magic, comedy and illusions presentation by Simon Winthrop; a performance by Lindsy Anton of the Bay Area Houston Ballet & Theatre; a wearable art fashion show; and a silent auction.
The gala at the Hobby Marriott, 9100 Gulf Freeway, will begin with a reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $125 per person. Advance purchases are preferred, but tickets will be available at the door.
Ticket sales benefit The Arts Alliance Center of Clear Lake, 2000 NASA Parkway in Nassau Bay, to support its education and outreach programs and its year-round exhibits.
Its outreach programs include an annual exhibition of Clear Creek and Friendswood student entries for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo art competition.
Its Imagination Station series, offered the second Saturday of each month, teaches children about art and artists.
Classes are also offered year-round for adults.
In addition to the entertainment during the gala, the center will present long-time supporter Mary Williams with its Kay Burnett-Outstanding Friend of the Arts Award and Richard Williams (no relation) with its Outstanding Artist Award.
Mary has been out in this area for 25 years doing service projects and supporting the arts," center special events coordinator Carol Wicklander said.
She's a great community person, and we want to give back to her for all of the money she's raised for the organization."
Mary Williams, who lives in the Clear Lake area, has volunteered with Navy Officers' Wives, Houston Museum of Natural Science and Museum of Health and Medical Sciences, Armand Bayou Elementary PTA and Bay Area Medical Wives, along with numerous other organizations.
Richard Williams is an artist and teaches at Clear Springs High School and the Alfred C. Glassell Museum School of Art. He serves on the advisory board to The Arts Alliance Center at Clear Lake, among other arts organizations, and has displayed his art in more than 170 exhibitions and 15 solo shows.
