8th Annual Patron Party & Miniature Auction FUN-raiser 
Wednesday, August 24th, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

LPAPA's annual Patron Party & Miniature Auction FUN-raiser celebrates the plein air painting legacy that helped established Laguna Beach as an artists' colony more than a century ago. To raise funds needed to open the first art gallery in 1918, and support the original Laguna Beach Art Association, artists hosted art parties and painted special miniatures for their patrons that are now coveted by fine art collectors.

In-Person attendees will enjoy gourmet passed hors d'oeuvres prepared by Saltwater Catering. Mr. Jean Stern will share about the Laguna Plein Air legacy and miniatures from his personal collection. Virtual ticket holders will have a personal Proxy bidder assigned to bid for them.

$100 for Member In-Person or Proxy Ticket (limited to 1 per member; must login to access)
$125 for In-Person Guest or Non-Member Ticket
$125 for Virtual Ticket for Proxy Bidder Access

Wednesday, August 24, 2022, 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM

The reception will begin at 6:00 pm with a large selection of passed gourmet small bites and fine wine to enjoy while viewing the miniatures available through the auction.

The miniature artwork is currently on exhibit at the LPAPA Gallery, and can also be viewed online through LPAPA's event page.

In addition to a limited number of in-person party tickets, patrons who are not able to join us in person have the option to purchase a virtual ticket for a Proxy Bidder to be assigned to bid on your behalf.

The fast-paced live auction, exclusive to registered Patron Party attendees and proxies, will commence after Mr. Stern's opening remarks at 7:10 pm, and is expected to end with dessert before 9:00 pm, with checkout completed before 10:00 pm.

100% of the auction proceeds supports nonprofit LPAPA, the LPAPA Gallery, and the 2022 Laguna Plein Air Invitational. Thank you for your support!
