9th Annual Patron Party & Miniature Auction FUN-raiser

2023 Mini Auction Collage square
9th 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, the original Laguna Beach Art Association 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 Spectrum Culinary.  Virtual ticket holders will have a personal Proxy bidder assigned to bid for them.

$100 for Member In-Person or Proxy Ticket (login to access)

The reception will begin at 6:00 pm with a selection of passed gourmet small bites and fine wine to enjoy while mingling with art lovers and viewing the miniatures to be auctioned.

The miniature artwork is on exhibit at the LPAPA Gallery August 3rd through 23rd, 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 opening remarks at approximately 7:10 pm, and is expected to end with dessert approximately 8:30 pm.

100% of the auction proceeds supports nonprofit LPAPA, the LPAPA Gallery, and the 2023 Laguna Plein Air Invitational.

All ticket and auction sales are final and nonrefundable but are transferable. Please contact LPAPA by email or by phone (949) 376-3635 for assistance.

Thank you for your support!
