Artexpo After Dark: This Thu & Fri, 4-7 PM
Join us as we kick off the show this year with Artexpo After Dark, sponsored by GE Capital, Bombay Sapphire, Barefoot Wine and Tucker Robbins. Enjoy wine, cocktails and light fare! You’ll have the opportunity to mingle with the artists, enjoy refreshments and be among the first to see this year’s all-new selection of paintings, sculptures, glassworks and more. Cocktail attire is requested, so put on the dog! (Note: Thursday is Trade-only, and Friday is open to the general public.)
Relax and have a seat on elegant, eco-friendly, artisanal furniture by Tucker Robbins. Tucker’s designs are made from extraordinary materials and are worked by hand rather than by machine. Each piece may have a utilitarian function, but it also has a story to tell and draws the eye out as a work of art.
If you’d like to learn more about financing packages to make art and luxury purchases more affordable for your collectors, this is the perfect opportunity. A representative from GE Capital will be on-hand to tell you all about consumer-financing programs that offer you fast and easy financing solutions to help your clients bring home the fine art they love. The Luxury Financing program empowers gallery owners to offer art lovers flexible financing options on a dedicated line of credit. With 6, 12, 18 and even 24 months to pay (without interest), it’s easier than ever for art aficionados to take home the masterpieces they want when they want to.
While you’re mingling, be sure to enjoy cocktails made with Bombay Sapphire’s signature gin. Ordinary gins might boil their botanicals directly in the spirit, but Bombay Sapphire’s one-of-a-kind flavor is created through the Vapour Infusion process. Lemon peel, coriander, grains of paradise and other precious botanicals are held separate from the spirit in perforated copper baskets, and when the heated vapours rise, the distinctive flavor of the botanicals are released. The result? A complex aromatic liquid that delivers a broader, more balanced flavor.
There will be plenty of wine and bubbly on tap too, thanks to Barefoot Wine. Enjoy fine whites, reds and blush while you meet and greet this year’s exhibitors. From Sauvignon Blanc to Riesling, Red Moscato, Merlot, White Zinfandel, Moscato Spumante and more, you’ll find plenty to wet your whistle.
See you after dark!
