Art and wine lovers unite! You may associate artist and friend of the foundation Alex Beard with his iconic “For the Love of the Pig” piece that has become the staple image of Boudin, Bourbon & Beer. More recently, his talented hand crafted “For the Love of the Sailfish” for our inaugural Line, Vine & Dine last year. Alex is known for his “abstract naturalism,” as he’s coined the phrase, and he travels around the world for inspiration for his work. For tonight, he has graciously created an original piece featuring the very theme of our event, expressing “The Wonderful World of Wine.” Not only can you own an original piece from Alex, but you’ll have the rare opportunity to visit with him (among 19 of your closest friends) with an exclusive private event inside his new Magazine Street gallery. Emeril Lagasse Foundation will take care of all artfully inspired cuisine and top shelf libations as you browse his beautiful gallery and hear tales of his adventures from conservation safaris in Africa. The hardest part will be narrowing down your invite list! Alex will be unveiling his original, custom piece during our live auction for all to see.
DATES FOR RECEPTION SCHEDULED BY MUTUAL AGREEMENT.
