The 2013 Fire & Ice Gala and Opening Night Preview party was another sold-out event this year with over 1,000 patrons and artists celebrating the 61st Annual Sausalito Art Festival on the festival waterfront grounds.
Chaired by Wayne Kaleck, the elegant, black tie evening provided an exclusive opportunity for art aficionados to preview the work of all 260 artists exhibiting at the show; it also included a cocktail reception featuring the Starduster Orchestra and a fabulous four-course wine pairing dinner catered by McCalls – Events Management with music by the Dick Bright Orchestra.
As always, Mr. Kaleck brought a new level of sophistication and glamour to this wonderful evening of art and community. Proceeds from the gala benefit the festival foundation’s newly launched educational program “Artists Teaching Art” that connects young students in Marin County schools with working artists who teach the children new skills to promote their creative expression.
