The Great Gallery Heist

colorized heistWe’re inviting the community to join us Nov. 7 to “Steal the Art” in an event we hope will become an annual signature fundraiser for the North Port Art Center.

Ticket holders will have the opportunity to go home with an original piece of art provided by our generous artists whose work was entered in our invitational “Best of the Best” show. What art they get to take home depends on both strategy and luck, and a little bit of planning.

Each attendee’s name is drawn individually from a lottery box. The ticket holder then gets to call out the number of the artwork he would like, if it hasn’t already been called. And he gets to do just that UNLESS he has failed to buy our “Theft Protection Policy.” Because, you see, the “thieves” in our gallery that night aren’t just stealing the art from us…they’re stealing it from each other.

Tickets are $75 per person, $140 per couple, and are on sale now. Reserved seating for 80 attendees. The evening includes a wine and appetizer reception, dinner catered by Blu’ Island Bistro of Venice, coffee, tea, and dessert, wine and beer, numerous door prizes, a live art auction, and 50/50 raffle. Former North Port Mayor Jim Blucher and North Port Area Chamber of Commerce President Jill Luke will serve as our MC’s for the evening. Tickets are available by calling NPAC at 941-423-6460 or online.
