We are less than a week away to the 36th Annual Charbonneau Art Festival. We have planned an exceptional event for everyone this year!
This Year’s Opening Night GALA!
We will begin with a GALA! Champagne Reception & Silent Auction on Friday evening, November 1, beginning at 6:00. Our artists’ gallery will exhibit works by local artists—including many from Charbonneau, along with our featured artist- Elaine Luneke. The country club lounge will feature a large exhibit of student art from Canby and Wilsonville high schools with many students providing demonstrations througout the 3-day festival.
Our Silent Auction this year is the best ever!
For our Silent Auction this year we have twice as many items including — a premium wine raffle; a near new and ready for prime time 15″ MacBook Pro; a 1998 bottle of Norma Jean Wine; sports memorabilia for Collection Connection, including Babe Ruth, “Duck House” and a framed 2018 Beaver’s Championship collectible; overnight stays at very nice places; wine tasting and more wine; beauty packages; tons of beautiful gift baskets; garden art; and some most excellent fine art from artist, who are also showing in our gallery — just to list a few. Bring your family, your friends, and your credit card !
Because this is a fund-raiser for art programs at our local high schools, our donors to this year’s Silent Auction really stepped it up and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
In addition at our GALA!, Charbonneau’s Marilyn Anderson will again be at the baby grand piano. But wait, there’s more! We have planned even more scrumptious h’ors d’oeuvres than ever — donated by Tom’s Wilsonville Catering, Cutsforth Thirftway, Dalton’s NW Catering, It’s Party Time Catering, and Magnolia Catering.
