Tomorrow night, Gage Academy of Fine Art will be hosting their event Best of Gage: Student Art Exhibit, Awards & Sale. The exhibition was juried by Derrick Cartwright, who will also select the Best in Show recipient. The audience also gets to vote to decide the winner of the People's Choice award.
Most of the work is from Gage's Classical Atelier program and you'll have an opportunity to purchase over 400 works (ranging from $50 to $1200). I got the chance to pop over last week and look over some shoulders. Wow - the art is amazing. Update: Oops, most of the art for sale is from the Classical Atelier program but the show is comprised of work from all the students at Gage.
Also, if you're afraid all the good stuff will get snatched up before you can buy it, you can purchase a VIP ticket for $50 and get in an hour ahead of time (5pm) and and free drinks all evening.
