Art Throb, the Arts Council annual gala celebration for lovers of art, will take place this year on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at 5:00 pm in the Hawthorn Room at Marylhurst University. Inspired by the glamour and mystery of the masquerade, guests are encouraged to don an artful mask, wear black tie or a fancy dress, and join us for this elegant soirée!
Nearly 200 people joined in the celebration last year, and this year promises to harness that excitement at the elegant and festive gathering with its fun and fantastical theme. Special masks will be available for purchase.
The evening will commence with celebratory champagne and guests will enjoy a moveable feast of seasonally inspired delicious small plates, while dancing and merry music will delight your heart as you support the important work of the Arts Council.
This year’s silent auction will include one-of-a-kind fine art objects, dining and hotel stays, spa treatments, and incredible vacation and experience packages. Live auction items include an African photo safari, fine jewelry, Blazers tickets, a beautiful beach house stay and luxury car for a weekend, and so much more.
