Article by Joe Sioufi: If you are like me an art lover, or if you are an art collector, an art appreciator this event is for you. Fresh Arts presents its annual gala, entitled Ball n’ Chain, a wedding themed party and fundraiser honoring the merger of Fresh Arts coalition and Spacetaker on Friday, February 1, 2013, 8-11 p.m. at Winter Street Studios. This year’s gala will feature the artists: George Lancaster, Mathew Dirst (Ars Lyrica) & Sixto Wagan (DiverseWorks), and Rich Levy (Inprint).
More than 400 Bridesmaids, Odd Couples, Bridezillas, and a whole host of creative costumers will enjoy the year’s most unforgettable wedding reception, featuring a lifestyle and fine art silent auction, burlesque, live music, dancing, great food, fabulous cocktails and some pretty wild surprises.
Ball n’ Chain will feature four different wedding-themed areas on the second floor of Winter Street Studios. In the Vegas baby! main stage area, partygoers dance the night away to favorite wedding reception hits performed by the eight-piece band Klockwork, and take-in a special “Cake-topper” burlesque performance by Tifa Tittlywindks of Dem Damn Dames, strolling showgirls and of course, the King.
