A New Twist of Yearly Fundraiser to Support of Georgia’s Artist Residency Program
This fall, the annual Hambidge Center for Creative Arts & Sciences fundraiser comes alive with brief, dynamic performances throughout an evening highlighting the variety of art communities the organization serves. With participants in theatre, dance, poetry and visual arts, the 15th Annual Hambidge Art Auction & Performance Gala offers a stellar showcase in celebration of 75 years of nurturing brilliant artistic exploration and expression. In addition to the ongoing bursts of short performances, the event will feature a silent auction with pieces from 125 emerging and established artists from throughout the country. Guests will also enjoy organic and locally-grown cuisine from the Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar & View as well as signature cocktails and libations.
All proceeds go toward Hambidge residencies for today’s brightest artists and scientists at our 600 acre creative sanctuary in the Great Smokey Mountains.
