Birdhouse Gala

bhg2013Friday, May 30th, 2014 • 5:00-7:30 pm

The Birdhouse Gala & Auction, PAINTS’ annual signature fundraising event, was conceived eight years ago as an exciting way of linking the annual Piedmont High School Bird Calling Contest (a quirky competition that brings local students onto Late Night with David Letterman

to perform their winning bird calls) back to our community’s art scene to fundraise for art education. Each year the gala showcases the work of Bay Area artists as well as our own student artists who donate original works that range in style from elegant to whimsical, humorous to political. The pieces (bird houses, paintings, prints, sculptures, etc…) are sold through a lively auction which is held in a lush Piedmont home garden, and is a sell-out event each year with attendance of 200+ people. PAINTS gala has grown in popularity due to its unique character as a fun and original arts event where the art, wine and food are all first rate. To top it all off, the Piedmont High School Bird Calling contestants make a brief appearance to regale us with their calls. There is no more popular party in Piedmont!
