Artful Night Under the Stars shines, raises more than $12,000

Stunning table flower arrangements created by Santa Rosa Beach florist Tim Ryan of Botaniqdecorated the room, and Grayton Beerprovided the endless glasses of pale ale and I.P.A. for guests. And of course the atmosphere would not be complete without tunes from the beloved Alabama-based band Martha’s Trouble, which rocked the party with musicfrom their recent album release entitled “A Heart Like You.”

“It was amazing to see the wide variety of mediums and techniques 30A artists use to create unique pieces,” says Genevieve Torrey, co-event chair of Artful Night Under the Stars. “From photography on brushed aluminum and reverse paint on glass to precious giclées and vintage mixed media, it’s obvious the artists on 30A contribute fresh artistic perspective."

Next year, the school has big plans to make the gala even more fabulous.

“We want to continue to expand the auction by holding it during the winter tourist break in February of 2014 with plans to possibly use the entire V Seagrove restaurant to make this truly the premier art auction on 30A,” says Maureen Paine, director of The Tree House Episcopal Montessori School. “And with this group of fantastic parents and amazing community support from the local artists, anything is possible.”
