Help a North Texas Artist today!!!

easllogo2016

North Texas artists need your support!  To show your support, we hope you will make a gift to the Emergency Artist’s Support League.  As you probably know, visual artists and visual arts professionals often live within narrow financial constraints, even in the best of times. A medical crisis, fire, or other emergency can result in catastrophe.

In response, artists and arts professionals joined together to found EASL (Emergency Artists Support League) in 1992. EASL is operated by a 100% volunteer Board of Directors, allowing for maximum funds to be distributed to artists in need. Since its conception, EASL has provided over $475,000 in grant assistance to North Texas area visual artists and visual art professionals.

We want you to know that we are currently busy at work on new EASL initiatives; including new PR materials, a new website at EASL.US, and the distribution of a bi-annual E-Newsletter. In addition, new programs at area galleries, universities, and museums are being considered and will be rolled out later this year. Of course, the ever-popular Art Heist Art Auction will again bring artists and art collectors together in April 2018 to support local artists in need. We have great plans for the coming years, and we look forward to your participation as an EASL ambassador in our community.

The success of any organization is due in greatest measure to the support that it receives from the community it serves.  That is why we hope that you will support EASL today with a 100% tax-deductible contribution.  Donating is easy through our website at  EASL.US

Dinner in White fundraiser for Granbury Arts Alliance Sept. 24

dinner-in-white-granbury1

Granbury Arts Alliance Presents its First Annual Dinner in White

September 24 7-9pm

What happens when a pop-up dinner and flash mob converge at a beautiful outdoor location amidst public art near the Historic Granbury Square? Join the Granbury Arts Alliance (GAA) for their Annual Membership Drive and first annual “Dinner in White” picnic to find out!

On September 24th, at the Langdon Center lawn (one block east of the Square), you are invited to join the GAA and about a 100 of your closest friends from 7-9pm (set-up may begin as early as 6:30pm) for dinner and dancing amid art and the stars. There’s a caveat though…

This fabulous evening will be modeled after an event that started in Paris in 1988 and has since become an international sensation – a dinner attended in elegant, all white attire, with all white table settings. Each participant brings their own setup (tables 28”-32” square, chairs, or a picnic blanket), and food and beverages (wine and beer are fine). If you want to attend but don’t feel inclined to cook, order your food to go in advance from one of the partnering local restaurants on the Square (see list of participating establishments).

That same evening, the Galleries of Granbury will be having their Last Saturday Gallery Night beginning at 5pm… Check out the art first, pick up your dinner-to-go, ride the free tram over to the Langdon Center and prepare to eat, drink, and dance the night away to live music on the gorgeous stone patio under the amazing oaks.

When the event is done, everything packed in is packed back out, and the property is left as pristine as before…Now go find those white pants and loafers you’ve been hanging onto since 1978 – you just knew you’d eventually need them again!

There is a preregistration required of $10/person – which may be applied in full towards a GAA membership should you choose to be a part of GAA’s year round activities.

For Registration:  www.granburyartsalliance.org

These wonderful eateries on the Square have partnered with us and will give Dinner in White participants the opportunity to order and buy their meals in advance. The restaurants will individually let folks know if they have special choices designed for the event or if the whole menu is available. So please, give them a call, and pick up your order on the way to a wonderful evening.1890 Grille–Christina’s–Ketzler’s–Pearl Street Station–Paradise Bistro–The Filling Station–Farina’s

DALLAS – May 2, 2016 – The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) hosted Art Ball 2016: Art + Architecture with more than 400 guests on Saturday, April 23, 2016, at the Dallas Museum of Art. Ann and David Sutherland served as this year’s Art Ball Co-chairs.

Top bidding was on Nicolas Alquin’s Diapason sculpture, featuring old oak with burned patina and lime, and a Presidential Live Oak, grown at the prestigious ranch of President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush in Crawford, Texas.

At 7:45 p.m., a 30-foot tall curtain dramatically opened revealing another Todd Events masterpiece of contemporary reds, greens, and yellows.  Sprays of yellow florals, moss drenched chandeliers, and oversized head tables in the shape of a plus sign tied the room into a sensory wonderland. 

The Dallas String Quartet provided lively and electric dinner entertainment while patrons feasted on a multi-course dinner catered by Cassandra Fine Catering, which included lobster, duck and fish courses.  The live auction, assembled by interior architectural designer Trisha Wilson and sponsored by Christie’s, proved spectacular with items including a Dallas sports package, Napa Valley Wine country getaway and an African Safari at the Izingwe Lodge, a private South African lodge home on the 82,000-acre Welgevonden Private Game Reserve, located in the Waterburg mountain region.
