The proceeds go to supporting school and community events sponsored by the Ashe County Arts Council. Tickets are $40 per person.

This year, dessert reception attendees will have the opportunity to bid in the Feast for the Arts Silent Auction. There are more than three-dozen items including paintings, house concert, destination packages, outdoor furniture, unique offerings for your home and more. Many of the items were made by local artists and craftsmen which offer one of a kind artwork for your home and garden.

Delicious desserts from some of the best restaurants and caterers in the High Country will entice and excite the gala attendees. Visit with friends and neighbors, view the exhibit, “Through the Camera’s Eye” and enjoy a glass of wine.
