This year the evening will include a non-juried themed art show. We are inviting Rogue Gallery members to submit up to three works of art for the exhibit based on the Paris inspired theme of Le Moulin Rouge. The exhibit will be on display for several weeks at the gallery and will travel to RoxyAnn for the auction evening.  Artists do not have to attend the auction to be part of the exhibit, but are encouraged to join us for this fun event!
