Tickets are now on sale for the 2019 Colorado Governor’s Art Show & Sale Opening Night Gala. Meet artists and get exclusive access to fine art Friday, May 3, at the Loveland Museum.
Meet 56 of Colorado’s top fine artists and be among the first to see and buy their new art pieces. Gala tickets can be purchased on the Governor’s Art Show and Sale website for $75 per person.
The gala is the only opportunity during the show to meet and mingle with the artists, providing attendees a unique opportunity to learn more about each piece, including the inspiration behind it, the technique and more. Tickets to this exclusive event include hors d’oeuvres and drinks.
The Governor’s Art Show will bring together 56 of the state’s most talented artists and Legacy Artist Ron Hicks for a monthlong exhibit at the Loveland Museum. On May 4 the show will open its doors to the public and run through June 2. The art show has established itself as one of the top two art shows in the state and is among the many reasons Loveland is at the heart of the arts in Colorado.
“This show and the gala are perfect opportunities to celebrate the best of Colorado fine art,” said John Kinkade, Governor’s Art Show committee member. “The opening gala provides fine art lovers and buyers with a unique opportunity to connect with some of their favorite artists and discover new artists and artwork to add to their collections.”
The monthlong exhibit will be held at the Loveland Museum/Gallery, an event co-sponsor. Exhibit admission is $7; free for museum members. A Plein Air Festival will be hosted on Saturday, June 1, at the Rialto Theater. The live auction will begin at 4 p.m.
The Governor’s Art Show, with its theme “Art with Heart,” is presented by Loveland and Thompson Valley Rotary Clubs and endorsed by the governor of Colorado. Net proceeds will benefit Rotary-sponsored charitable projects and causes. One-third of net proceeds will go to the Thompson Education Foundation’s Homeless Assistance Fund, and additional funds will go toward scholarships for local art students.
