No? Well then, why not stop by this year’s Art in the Public Eye Fundraiser, celebrating the legacy of Andy Warhol’s Factory.

An annual tradition, APE always puts on a great party. Running from 7-10pm this Saturday, November 17th at Samantha’s Café and Catering (a great place, if you haven’t been) at 11 Broad Street in Glens Falls, this year’s event is a great way to unwind, have a few drinks and help support a good cause. And as a tribute to Warhol, you can dress in Pop Art Style or come as you are!

APE’s mission is to cultivate a partnership between the area arts community and local businesses, promote established and emerging artists and local commerce, and create greater access to the arts through cultural activities and public exhibitions. All funds raised at this year’s event will be used to help fund public arts programs including the Third Thursday Glens Falls Art Walk, Chalk Fest, Outdoor Cinema, Gallery 99 and Art Cart – Mobile Arts Center.

Not only will there be great food and wine on hand, but there’ll also be a silent auction with a bevy of great prizes, including:
