By A.J.Lam
A big thank you goes out to Amira de Vera Associate Publicist for Pennant Media group for the invite and hospitality. The Power Plant held it’s annual ‘Powerball’ event to raise funds towards it’s yearly public programs and exhibits. Since the initiation of this annual party in 1999, there has been increasing public attention attracting artists, celebrities and fashionistas alike.
The Power Plant (located at 231 Queens Quay West) on Toronto’s waterfront is a beautiful and serene location to house this public gallery enthusiastically dedicated to hosting contemporary visual art.
The night kicked off with a VIP party between 7-9pm, with a ticket price of $300 and featuring a private performance by award winning British artist Naomi Kashiwagi, whose performance entitled ‘Gramophinca’ utilized a live gramophone playing at 78rpm from a bygone era.
Over 1500 people attended this upscale art party, themed “old world/new world” which brought together analogue and digital technology in art performances and installations that kept the partygoers wowed and entranced throughout the night.
In addition to the art, the event had some great sponsors such as; Allan Candy, Cheese Boutique, Petite Thuet, Nadege , Johnnie Walker, Tangqueray No. 10 and Ciroc – which hosted some excellent signature cocktails, especially their coconut daiquiri’s!! to name a few.
The open bar had the drinks flowing all night, in addtion mouthwatering gourmet food stations, for late nights eats, was the perfect accompaniment to the art!
