Hidden Treasures Arts Gala

The Carroll County Cultural Arts Alliance Board of Directors presents the twenty-seventh annual “Hidden Treasures” Arts Gala. The Carrollton Artist Guild is creating one-of-a-kind artistically decorated boxes for the Gala that will each contain hidden treasures. The patrons will be able to see the boxes, but not the treasures within. (A small amount of peeking will be allowed.)
This is a dressy casual event and includes heavy hors d’oeuvres by Susan Sapp and Nancy Dixon. Musical entertainment will be provided by Jerry Rogers on keyboard. Gala Co-chairs are Susan Fleck and Michelle Morgan.

The “hidden treasure” boxes all contain original works of art. There are original paintings by Tom Nielsen and Margaret Dyer, a sketch of the Carrollton Depot by Micki McDonald, a beautiful ceramic tea set by Melanie Drew, a hand made pen by Steve Pritchard, stain glass by Heidi Drew, and much, much more. One box even includes tickets to the Georgia Aquarium that comes with a behind-the-scenes tour! (Patrons will bid on the boxes at a Silent Auction, but will not know what is in each box!) But, regardless of what is in the box, the box itself is a unique work of art.

Admission is 2008-2009 membership in the Arts Alliance at the Sustaining Level or Higher for couples or the Supporting Level or higher for individual memberships. The Gala is Thursday, May 8, 2008, 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at the home of Claire and Jim Cooley, 114 Habersham Place, Carrollton (Sunset Hills). For more information call 770-838-1083.
