This year’s For the Love of Art Gala, Sharing the Vision will honor longtime Focus on the Masters (FOTM) patrons James and Mary Galbraith.  Mary began her FOTM career as a receptionist in 2003 and soon added volunteer and membership coordinator, writing and copy editing to her repertoire. Often working over 30 hours per week, Mary is the friendly face and voice of FOTM. Jim and Mary generously contribute their time and money and are among FOTM’s most valued patrons.  Their commitment to the arts is a testimony to their love of community and volunteerism.
The evening will begin with a VIP reception from 6 to 7 p.m. where guests will mix and mingle with fellow art lovers and sponsors while enjoy appetizers and libations.  Reception attendees will get a sneak peek at the silent auction items before the Gala begins.  The Gala will include a live auction featuring fine art and unique art experiences.  A performance by FOTM Documented cellist Virginia Kron and pianist/composer Leslie Horgan will be one of the highlights of the evening.
For the Love of Art is FOTM’s largest FUNdraising event of the year. Tickets for the VIP reception are $25 for FOTM members, $35 non-members.  Gala Tickets are $100 for FOTM Members, $125 non-members.  Tickets available HERE or by calling 805.653.2501.

All proceeds fund FOTM’s education programing including the Learning to See in-school residencies.
