Palate 2 Palette Kicks Off With Youth Gallery Reception

Reception To Be Held Night Before Main Event

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

Area teens will soon have the opportunity to display their artwork at Palate 2 Palette’s Youth Gallery.  Sponsored by the Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union, the gallery will feature artwork from area high school students on Friday, April 25, and Saturday, April 26, at The Church on Main. 

Exhibitors, family and friends are invited to attend the Youth Gallery Reception on April 25 from 7-9 p.m. as a way to kick of the 7th Annual Palate 2 Palette event and to preview the juried exhibit prior to the Gallery Stroll.  This year, the gallery will boast a ‘Steampunk Carnival’ theme, mixing styles from the Victorian and Industrial eras, with a vintage carnival theme.  Live music and cuisine provided by Broad Street Grille will be accompanied by the backdrop of floral arrangements from May Flowers, a photo booth, and the main attraction- the student’s artwork.

The Youth Gallery will be open on Saturday from 5-8 p.m. as part of Palate 2 Palette’s Gallery Stroll.  There will be music, wine and hors d’oeuvres.

“We have sponsored the Youth Gallery for six years now, and each year we are blown away by the creativity and artwork of the students involved,” said Sarah Sherfey, community relations specialist at TVFCU.  “We invite the whole community to join us at the reception and for the stroll to see why we are so passionate about this great event.”

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Craniofacial Foundation of America.  The CFA is a local nonprofit organization that supports the work of the Tennessee Craniofacial Center at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger and Erlanger Health System.  The TCC specializes in the evaluation and treatment of patients of all ages with craniofacial deformities with services covering a broad range of operations and treatment from birth defects, tumors and trauma.  

Tickets for Friday night’s reception are $5 for adults and $2 for students.  Tickets to Palate to Palette on Saturday night are $75 per person, which includes admission to all the galleries as well as the Bubbles and Sweets Party.  For more information visit the event website at www.p2pchattanooga.com.  Get event updates by following Palate to Palette on Facebook and Twitter.
