“The GO ART! staff and board are extremely excited to be working with the Maison Albion and the Glovers on this event,” said GO ART!

There could not be a more magnificent place to do it than the Maison Albion; cheers to a new adventure that is sure to be an outstanding journey.”

A silent auction benefiting GO ART! will run the length of the event. Guests are encouraged to imagine themselves transported back to Victorian times at a Parisian park as they stroll the breathtaking grounds of Maison Albion. Plein air artists will also be on the grounds capturing the historic mansion and blooming gardens.
