The Preview Party on Friday, October 13th prior to opening the show to the general public is for the artists, V.I.P.s and Sponsors. It is there to thank the artist and allow attendees to see the art before the general public. Their pre-pledge dollars allow them to attend the Preview Party from 6 pm – 9 pm AND use that money to buy art!
