The ArtFull Living Show House, located at Glassbury Court, 3370 Albany Post Rd (Route 9), has been extended through Oct. 14, and many events are scheduled to take place before the doors are closed.
Oct. 1 – 9: Previews for Silent Auction
Thursday, Oct. 11, 6 – 8:30 p.m. Cocktails and design talk, From Concept to Reaity: How to Find Your Style and Bring It to Life, with interior designer Nicole Ashey. Talk starts promptly at 6:30 p.m. This lecture offers a step-by-step approach to envisioning a concept and carrying it through to create an enjoyable room.
Ashey is the principal of Burlock Interiors in Beacon. She holds a master’s degree in architecture and uses it to come up with valuable, cost-effective solutions for her clients. She feels that great design starts with collaborative process and comes from the client as much as the designer.
The evening includes cocktails by Dutch’s Spirits, hors d’oeuvres by Riverview Restaurant, the lecture, and a tour of the show house. RSVP by Monday, Oct. 8.
Oct. 11 – 14: Silent Auction
Final bids and closing reception on Oct. 14, 6 – 7:30 p.m.
All items are for sale prior to the auction, but not every item will be up for auction.
All profits from sales will be donated to two organizations, one local and one national that strive to educate, empower and inspire creativity in kids. The national organization is The Born This Way Foundation Charity, which teaches to accept differences and empower youth through anti-bullying education. Born This Way was started by Lady GaGa and her mother Cynthia Germanotta.
The local organization is the Garrison Art Center, which works to empower youth by stirring their creativity in themselves, providing education and skills in the arts, opportunities to display their work, intern opportunities, and community projects.
Oct. 13 and 14: The show house will be included on the Cold Spring Arts Open Studios Tour.
The show house at ArtFull Living is open daily, from 12 to 4 p.m., except for Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Visit coldspringarts.com for more information.
