Comment by AB: Anne Sconberg & Mark Henderson's Art Party began in 2007 when they converted their home into a gallery and invited friends and family to partake in a night of artistic and creative entertainment and experience. From that year forward, their party has grown and grown and grown. For this year's episode, the venue is the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds including a 30,000 square foot exhibition hall filled to the gills with art, more art in fact than you'll see at most major art fairs.
In addition to the art, activities on the grounds include art cars, fire, spoken word, song, dance, performances, fashion, film, food, beverage and more. Season the deal with at least several thousand revelers and you've got yourself a certified wingding. If Anne & Mark decide to have another go at it next year, which they most assuredly will, I highly recommend hightailing it on down to wherever they decide to throw it.
For those of you keeping score at home, all artists are selected by a jury consisting of Anne, Mark and others, and then invited to participate in the exhibition. There is no application process at this time. As for the art itself, if you can imagine it, you'll probably find it there-- one of the most diverse assortments I've ever seen on display at a single location. Believe it. All art is for sale and the show runs through September 25. See the Art Party website for details.
