Artistry Alive

Art appreciators and patrons alike flooded Magazine Street and the Warehouse Arts District on the evening October 4, for the annual Art for Art’s Sake celebration.

Presented by Capital One, the fundraiser turned 30 this year, and 44 galleries around New Orleans participated in the festivities. More than 30,000 people turned out for the event, perusing and cocktailing from 6-9 p.m., all the while enjoying live street music by various local talents. The weather was perfect, and the evening also saw the grand opening of some new faces on the art scene, including Axelle Fine Arts on Magazine Street and Angela King Gallery on Royal Street. The official party of the evening was held at the Contemporary Arts Center, which also showcased brand new collections and acquisitions. Many of the eclectic and fine jewelry stores were also open, allowing people to purchase treasures and trinkets. Gogo Jewelry even had a live DJ in the house: Dubla Music entertained guests with soul and funk while they enjoyed cupcakes and champagne.
