Harlequin Preview

While no reminder is needed of the Harlequin event set to open to the public Saturday, May 30th, we thought we’d give you a little preview of the artwork on display at the event. For more images, please view our Facebook page.

Stoked on Spring

Stoked Mentoring held their annual "Stoked on Spring" event Saturday evening. The benefit hosted a silent and live auction, which offered 125 works of affordable works of art and one-of-a-kind items, as well as ten items auctioned by Christie's. The event was exciting and raised awareness about Stoked, as well as raised some money for the charity.

Friday evening, Openhouse Gallery was taken over by GlamourGals, an organization that forms bonds between teen girls and elderly women. The event was a fun party for sponsors and volunteers of Glamour Gals. And for one night, Openhouse added a touch of pink to our typical white decor.

Behr Ultra Editor Preview/Product Launch

This week Behr Paints & Home Depot teamed up to throw an event at Openhouse Gallery for those oh-so-spoiled editors. To celebrate the launch of their new line of paints, Behr invited top editors to check out the new product, eat delicious food (catered by Tastings), and even receive manicures and massages. And while we can't show you pictures from the event, take our word for it that everyone was ultra-happy and super pampered that evening. It was truly an event fit for a...behr?

Downtown Little School Fundraiser

The Downtown Little School, which offers early child education for children aged 2-5, held a well attended fundraiser to raise money for their nursery school program. With over 400 silent auction items, a live auction including a vacation for 2, and a Vespa that was raffled off, it's no wonder the Downtown Little School exceeded their fundraising expectations.
