You are invited to join the Artists and Patrons of the Sausalito Art Festival on Friday, August 30th at five thirty in the evening. The 2013 Fire & Ice Gala (so hot, it's cool!) will commence with a cocktail reception and preview of the two hundred seventy artists who are showing on the Sausalito waterfront.

Stroll the beautiful grounds at Marinship Park while viewing the art and engage with the artists. Take pleasure in the delectable hor d’ouvres before enjoying a spectacular sit-down dinner catered by Dan McCall & Associates, and complete the evening by dancing to the incredible sounds of the Dick Bright Orchestra.

Proceeds of this year’s Fire & Ice Gala will benefit an innovative program, Artists Teaching Art, which launched this past spring with incredible success. This organization connects young students in Marin County schools with working artists who will inspire and stimulate the students’ creativity and imagination by incorporating their own skills and experience.

It is our goal to bring a new level of sophistication, glamour, and entertainment to this event. We hope you will join us for what promises to be an exceptional evening!

Check out some highlights from the 2012 Diamond Jubilee Gala:

The big band atmosphere of a swanky art deco supper club electrified a large-scale tent on the grounds of Sausalito’s Marinship Park on August 31, 2012 for the Sausalito Art Festival Foundation’s 60th anniversary Diamond Jubilee Gala, benefiting its education programs and community philanthropic activities. Event Chairman Wayne Kaleck presided over the sold-out, black-tie affair that featured stylishly elegant period décor and an exclusive preview of more than 260 artists’ work while Gala patrons enjoyed cocktails to the sounds of the Stardust Orchestra. A gourmet four-course dinner with wine pairings by the renowned Dan McCall and Associates of San Francisco, along with dancing to the famed Dick Bright Orchestra capped the evening’s festivities.
