Photos: Mixer at Wang’s April 12th

The event this past Tuesday was a great success! The Wang’s patio was transformed for the evening into a an art gallery featuring artwork from Malcolm Doran, Terry Hastings, Danny Hughes, Cid Newsome, the Perkins’ and K Stenlund.

The exhibition included many new photographs and artworks.

A feature of the evening was a silent auction: Each of the artists donated a small artwork, and 100% of the proceeds go to the charities. We also had donations from King Stairs Software and 1st Class Detailing.

During the event, Wang’s staff served delicious Asian appetizers and dim-sum, which convinced at least one group of visitors to stay for dinner!

The event was scheduled to end at 7pm, but with so many people enjoying the art, bidding on the auction items, and talking with the artists we kept the event open until almost 9pm.

The event was created to benefit two great local charities: The AIDS Assistance Program and The Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter.

Wow, that was a lot of fun last night. Thank you so much for all of your hard work. The artwork was beautiful! I love my new piece. I so enjoyed meeting all of the artists. What a treat! On behalf of the many orphaned animals in our shelter…thank you. — Tamara Hedges, Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter
