“What the what? I think I just saw a ninja… with a camera. I think it was a photo ninja!”
Okay, okay… so I win the award for dorkiest photographer ever and, yes, this is probably the lamest set up for a blog post on record. But, what can I say? This erratic spring weather is making me pretty loopy. Plus, I’m getting excited for the 2011 Plains Art Museum Spring Gala on Saturday. This year’s theme? Masterpiece Masquerade.
The PAM Spring Gala is the premier social event in Fargo-Moorhead and a wonderful fundraiser for the beloved museum. The event is this Saturday, May 7th from 7 pm to 1am. Tickets are $90 and can be purchased online or at the door. Included is a wine tasting, rockin’ music and super tasty food (two words: sweet bacon). There will also be a silent art auction featuring the work of dozens of area artists including yours truly. Check out my piece up for auction titled “Oats.”
Dave and I, with our trusty cameras, will be documenting the epic event for the second year in a row. Let me warn you, we are taking the masquerade theme seriously. Expect to see us out of the corner of your eye as we dart from one angle to another, stopping to grab some fun group shots (and sweet bacon) every now and again.
Now, through all of that babbling, do I still have your attention? If so, you are one step closer to winning a pair of free gala tickets! All you have to do is let us know what kind of mask you would wear to the masquerade. You can do this one of three ways: by leaving a comment on this blog post, tagging us on facebook (or leaving a message on our wall) or by tagging @milestoners in a tweet. The deadline is today (May 6) at 5 pm sharp. Shortly there after we will draw one of your names and then announce the winner via facebook and twitter.
Ready? Set? Go!
