If you’ve never seen the Southwest School of Art & Craft Ursuline Gardens you have overlooked a truly magnificient piece of the city. The Gardens as well as the equally breathtaking Coates Chapel is the site of the annual — Gala in the Garden benefit. In the spirit of the season, the theme this year is “Pomegranate, Saffron & Sage.”

“The Gala in the Garden and art sale raises funds to help support the school’s many community programs, such as the Mobile Arts Program, which sends more than 100 professional artist-teachers out into SA community centers and schools,” says director of marketing and public relations Catherine Bilson via email.

Gala in the Gardens will be held on October 4 at 6:30 p.m beginning with cocktails and an art sale. Catering will be provided by Club Giraud and live music by Nat Vandiver and Friends. For a sneak peek of the art sale, a preview will take place on October 3 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. The sale will feature works by artists such as Fernando Botero, Danville Chadbourne, Ken Little, and dozens of others.
