OPENING NIGHT GALA

The LA Art Show is proud to announce that actress Kate Beckinsale will be the official host of the 2019 Opening Night Premiere Gala, being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 from 7pm – 11pm. Musician Gavin Rossdale joins the roster as the evening’s Art Ambassador. Proceeds from the event will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the fifth year in the row. Thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

In collaboration with the World Health Organization, St. Judeseeks to raise the survival rate of the six most common childhood cancers to 60 percent by 2030. In the United States, four out of five children survive cancer, but in developing countries, that statistic is reversed. Only one out of five children diagnosed with cancer will live. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
All proceeds from the sale of Patron and Vanguard tickets and 15 percent of sales of Friend tickets will go directly to the charity. All attendees of the Opening Night Premiere party are supporting the lifesaving mission St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.®

The Patron Reception will feature a special presentation by St. Jude with address by Beckinsale. Attendees will enjoy cuisine by James Beard Award-Nominated Chef Jeffrey Nimer of Haute Chefs LA, and Executive Chef Nick Shipp of The Upper West,desserts from celebrated local chefs Valerie Gordon and Shannon Swindle, NESPRESSO, Cavit Prosecco and delicious hors d’oeuvres from over 20 select LA restaurants.

SABER will be creating a new painting live over the course of the evening in partnership with 1849 Wines. It will be auctioned off at the end of the night, with all proceeds going to St. Jude.

In addition to food, beverages, live music and art, gala attendees will be given a special sneak peek of the LA Art Show’s 200,000 sq. ft. of programming, featuring over 100 galleries from 18 countries. They will have first dibs to try Marta Minujín’s“Rayuelarte” hopscotch installation, and more. They will also be the first to see special performances by Dorian Wood and Sarah Trouche.

The LA Art Show will return to the Los Angeles Convention Center from January 23 – 27, 2019. As the city (and West Coast’s) largest art fair, and one of the most diversely programmed in the world, the LA Art Show features a comprehensive lineup of exhibitors not only in contemporary and modern art, but also classical and other specialized art scenes that often command their own dedicated shows.
