The Noyes Museum of Art Gala Event


The Noyes Museum of Art is hosting its Annual Gala on Saturday, September 26, 2009 at 6 pm. This year's South-American themed event, Noche De Arte, will be an evening filled with art, culture and cuisine. Guests will enjoy live music, Latin-inspired cuisine and signature cocktails amid the museum's galleries and tranquil outdoor backdrop.

Sponsored by the Press of Atlantic City and The Herbert and Lois Rothenburg Charitable Foundation, The Noyes Museum of Art gala will feature live painter, potter and sculptor demonstrations, a cigar garden, piƱata style silent auction, Tiffany & Co. raffle, and artist Frank Hyder.

This year's featured gala artist, Frank Hyder, is an internationally recognized artist with more than 75 solo shows and hundreds of group exhibits. He is recognized as the first North American to show his work in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Venezuela. His works involve an intense personal commitment to process and image making. With work displayed throughout the United States and Latin America, Hyder's exhibit, Poems of a Threatened Eden prompts wonder and the need to protect the endangered environment.

The Noyes Museum of Art and Tiffany & Co. present guests with a chance to support a worthy cause and win gifts. Guests are encouraged to purchase pearls at $100. Each pearl is numbered with each recipient receiving a ticket with the corresponding number. All purchased pearls will be strung on a Tiffany Blue® thread, creating a beautiful necklace symbolic of generosity. The pearls are then deposited into a transparent Tiffany box. Ten pearls will be drawn from the box, with seven winners receiving Tiffany Design Director John Loring's book, Tiffany Pearls, and three lucky people winning one of the displayed grand prizes. One hundred percent of all raffle donation will benefit The Noyes Museum of Art.

Tickets to the 2009 Noche De Arte Gala are $100 per person or $1,000 for a table of 10. Tiffany & Co. raffle tickets are $100 each. All proceeds from this event will benefit The Noyes Museum of Art and its educational programs. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call 609-652-8848 or log on to
