2017 The Davenport Soiree
Join us for The Davenport Soiree!
We are trying something new this year! A new kind of event to help the Davenport House. By attending you will be supporting all things Davenport—our programs, our preservation, our outreach!
We hope you will be enchanted by the idea and will join us for an afternoon of song and delicious treats from Savannah’s storied eatery, Elizabeth on 37th Street.
Savannah songstress Kim Michael Polote will entertain, Elizabeth’s will provide the food and drinks and there will be a silent auction of one-of-a-kind art and opportunities.
Tickets may be purchased through the button above, by calling 912/236-8097 or using the order blank below.
Also see the list of generous sponsors below.
As part of the Event: Purchase a Chance to Win a Fabulous Sculpture called Three Graces
This is a rare opportunity to own a beautiful work of art.
The piece is called the Three Graces. It is carved out of Italian raspberry alabaster and like Michelangelo’s famous sculptures of The Slaves, the female forms emerging from the alabaster are incomplete and perhaps emblematic of the fight of women to emerge as independent and fully actualized individuals as they struggle to free themselves from the stone. They have been deliberately left incomplete, by the artist to represent the “eternal struggle of human beings to free themselves from the material world.
The artist, June Ray, is a resident of Savannah. Her work has appeared in galleries throughout the South including Atlanta’s Opus One and Tula Galleries, Wesleyan College in Macon and at the Georgia Marble Fine Art Exhibition. She has studied art with world renown sculptors such as Amelia James, Don Huntly, Pondra Williams and Fernando D’Astoli. Miss Ray has had a varied career working in fashion design and manufacturing as well as an ornamental iron and shower door designer. Most recently she has worked as an interior designer and realtor.
The Three Graces has been valued at $3,000
