The Black Velvet Art Party is a celebration of black velvet art and a fundraiser for the Lake George Arts Project! Artists donate new, original works of art for the party’s silent auction. 

The Black Velvet Art Party returns to Lake George for its 26th year on Saturday, November 22, 2014. This unique event fundraiser runs from 7 pm to 11pm. This year's theme: GNARLY.

This invigorating gathering of the local art scene is renowned for its out-of-the ordinary presentation of black velvet art and over-the-top apparel. The party features art and fashion awards, limbo contest and live dance music.

The highlight of the party: a silent auction of original black velvet art. Artists contribute new and original artwork containing black velvet, black velours, black velveteen or black flock. All entries are judged, and winners receive prizes for Best of Show and other categories.

Join the guests this year and dress up in funky formal attire for a chance to win an award for original black velvet attire! This year's theme is "GNARLY." Enjoy the night with fun, games, and live music by Big Fez & The Surfmatics.

All proceeds from the night go to benefit the Lake George Art Project’s Gallery Exhibition Series.

The Black Velvet Art Party is sponsored by the Lake George Arts Project.
