Actress Kate Beckinsale was the official host of the LA Art Show 2019 Opening Night Premiere Gala, at the Los Angeles Convention and Magic Image Hollywood Magazine was there.
Gavin Rossdale joined the roster as the evening’s Art Ambassador. Proceeds from the event will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the fifth year in the row. Thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
All proceeds from the sale of Patron and Vanguard tickets and 15 percent of sales of Friend tickets will go directly to the charity. All attendees of the Opening Night Premiere party are supporting the lifesaving mission St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.®
The Patron Reception was featured a special presentation by St. Jude with address by Beckinsale. Attendees enjoyed cuisine by James Beard Award-Nominated Chef Jeffrey Nimer of Haute Chefs LA, and Executive Chef Nick Shipp of The Upper West, desserts from celebrated local chefs Valerie Gordon and Shannon Swindle,NESPRESSO, Cavit Prosecco and delicious hors d’oeuvres from over 20 select LA restaurants.
SABER created a new painting live over the course of the evening in partnership with 1849 Wines. It was auctioned off at the end of the night, with all proceeds going to St. Jude.
In addition to food, beverages, live music and art, gala attendees were given a special sneak peek of the LA Art Show’s 200,000 sq. ft. of programming, featuring over 100 galleries from 18 countries. They had first dibs to try Marta Minujín’s “Rayuelarte” hopscotch installation, see special performances by Dorian Wood, Sarah Trouche, and more.
The LA Art Show returned to the Los Angeles Convention Center from January 23 – 27, 2019. As the city (and west coast’s) largest art fair, and one of the most diversely programmed in the world, the LA Art Show features a comprehensive lineup of exhibitors not only in contemporary and modern art, but also classical and other specializedart scenes that often command their own dedicated shows.
This year the show was amazing and we recommend you to come next year and enjoy the beautiful art pieces and also hang out with all the celebrities who always support this amazing event!.
