2009 Winter Art Mart and Silent Auction
Bath House Cultural Center
November 20-22, 2009
The art mart and auction are free and open to the public.
Fall in Dallas means, among other things, that art lovers can get a head start on holiday shopping during the Bath House Cultural Center Art Mart, November 20 – 22, 2009. Art Mart has always been the place to find a special piece of art for yourself, family, and friends: paintings, sculpture, photography, pottery, ceramics, jewelry, cards and other unique creations. This year, the Art Mart will include a reception launching the Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center, a new non-profit organization supporting the Bath House. There will also be a sneak peek of art on sale, a silent auction, and much more.
The Bath House Winter Art Mart benefits the Bath House Cultural Center’s year-round visual and performing arts programs. Purchases benefit everyone: The lucky owner will take home one-of-a-kind artwork, while local artists and arts lovers will be able to continue enjoying the arts at the neighborhood cultural center on White Rock Lake.
The Friends’ Kick-Off Reception and Art Preview is Friday, November 20, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm, and will be open to the public. Art Mart visitors are invited to raise a glass of cheer to celebrate the new organization, maybe become a Friend, and take a first look at the artistic creations and auction items being showcased in the Art Mart.
In addition to the art sale, which continues during the weekend, Friends of the Bath House will host a silent auction. All participating artists have generously donated art for the auction. This year’s auctioneer will be Artistic Eye; proceeds will go to the Friends Advisory Board to support visual and performing arts at the Bath House.
