This past weekend I had the honor & pleasure of attending the annual art gala at the Columbia Museum of Art hosted by the Contemporaries, an organization of young professinals involved in the Columbia art community. The gala was called the Black Jack Ball and naturally was Vegas themed. We were even given $25,000 at the door to gamble away at the various casino tables! Ok, so obviously it wasn't real money, but what a fun idea. Clearly, I am not a gambler beacuse I was nervous and learly of even spending my so called 'monopoly' money at the tables. I suppose that's one reason why Vegas never really appealed to me.
The party had a silent auction going on throughtout night of which I donated 3 oil paintings (notice them behind us in the top picture) and I am so excited to say that my "Lowcountry Love" (oyster) painting was voted a fan favorite of the night! Even more exciting is because of that I get to display my work in the Columbia Airport! If you happen to be traveling through the Cola airport in the month of March be on the lookout for some Rebecca Hinson Art on the walls! :) Congrats to the other winners of the night and special thanks to everyone who helped put together such a lovely evening! We had a blast!
