Put on a hat and join the ladies

 Art League of Lincoln California 

Fashion Show at Historic Beermann's

Leave it to the residents of Lincoln, CA to invent such a fun event --raising money for the "arts" in Lincoln.  I heard about this event on Facebook (who says social media doesn't work) and  invited my Mom to join me for tea to support the Art League of Lincoln.  This fundraiser brought ladies from all over the county for afternoon tea and visual delights.  The ladies were dressed up in hats, boas, gloves and we even saw a few parasols.

We all enjoyed a lovely afternoon in the charming setting of Beermann's Restaurant Ballroom.

I love this old building, one of the oldest in town.  Lincoln became a recognized town in 1859. Many buildings date back to the 1860-1900s. This particular building was built by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) and the Masons in 1864.  It is a beautiful building with lots of photos, wonderful lighting, moldings and historical details.
The old fashioned downtown area is a great place to shop, walk around and absorb the more than 150 year history of Lincoln.

Art Show

On display on the stage at the event there was a beautiful collection of "art" tea pots from the collection of Ken Underwood.  These were each unique and one of a kind well made pieces of art.

Jean Cross the Executive Director of the organization was the emcee of the event.  What a nice job her team did with these artful displays. 

The Art League of Lincoln is a contemporary arts group that focuses on a broad spectrum of the Arts: Clay and Ceramic Arts, Oil Painting and Watercolor, Photography, Needle Arts/Wearable Art, Jewelry, Dance and Theater Arts.

Table Display

The tables were set with an antique book centerpiece.  The pages were fanned out & folded and tea cups with sweet potted flowers.

What a nice group of laddies my Mom and I sat with too.  Everyone there was friendly and engaging.

The fashions modeled were unique and artistic creation by local Wearable Art members who gave us lots of inspiration and ideas.

Our waiter was a comedian, he was so animated and told us funny quips.  The food was fantastic too!

Fashion Show

The fashion show was marvelous. Sit back and take a look at some of the fashions.  (Please excuse the quality of the photo,  I was quite far away and could not use a flash.)  What lovely outfits these talented women made:

Thank you for checking out my fashion show photos.  I loved the Ballroom venue and want to get back to Beermann's to see the rest of this historic building.  I'm sure it will be fodder for another post, so until next time...Jonelle'
