Save the date for the Gage Collector’s Gala Art Auction & Benefit on March 13. Gage Academy of Art is currently celebrating twenty-five years of dedicated arts instruction and programming within Seattle and beyond, and this year’s gala is a great way to join the festivities. The night includes a four-course feast and live music by the Parnassus Project, one of the city’s most celebrated chamber quartets, with live and silent auctions of more than sixty artworks by regionally and nationally celebrated artists, including the recently departed Lyle Silver, Aristides Atelier graduate David Dwyer, Gage co-founder Gary Faigin, and celebrated sculptor Aiko Takamori. The auction will also be offering an incredible lineup of art experiences for the first time, including artist studio visits, private tours, romantic getaways and creative opportunities for the whole family.

This year’s gala will honor Charles Emerson, one of the Gage’s most knowledgeable and well-respected teaching artists. Emerson has been teaching at Gage for over twenty years and is “the living symbol of the Gage mission, working to educate, enrich and engage artists and the community in the pursuit of excellence in the visual arts.”

As in previous years, the gala will be held inside the seventy-foot ceilings and gothic columns of the beautiful St. Mark’s Cathedral, adjacent to Gage Academy on Tenth Ave. It’s a spectacular event and a great way to support one of Seattle’s most vibrant artistic centers, fostering the growth of artists both young and old.
