— The Winter Garden Art Association marked its anniversary with a gala Feb. 20 that brought about artists, art lovers and anyone else looking for an evening of fund-raising, food and fun.
Most of the roughly 200 patrons were awash with lots of black and white and splashes of red — that was the theme, after all.
The Winter Garden Art Association celebrated the inaugural-year success of its 127 SoBo Art Center with a “Splash 2015” gala that included artsy experiences, a raffle of artwork created during the event and both live and silent auctions.
Member artists Kim Minichiello, Mike Malloy, Rudy Drapiza and Jamie Wiggins participated in special art activities.
Nova Pop provided entertainment, as did master of ceremonies Mike Armbruster. Elizabeth McKinney, chair, and Mary Keating, co-chair of the WGAA Board of Directors, spoke, as well.
The art center, 127 S. Boyd St., is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. For more information, call (407) 347-7996 or email [email protected].
