SAVE THE DATE: TALA Fall Gala Saturday, November 10, 2012

Please join TALA on Saturday, November 10, 2012 from 7:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. for “Cirque des Arts,” a celebration of Texas art and music inspired by the sensory overload sensation of a circus and rave fusion! The Cirque des Arts Gala will be held at the Gremillion Gallery in Rice Village (2501 Sunset Boulevard, Houston, TX 77005), providing an architecturally inspiring backdrop for our three-ring affair, featuring live “cirque-tacular” performances by gifted artists in the circus genre.

Guests are encouraged to “Cirque” up their attire, finding inspiration in the fanciful and daring whimsy of the elegant international Big-Top performance troupe. Come for the fun, stay for the performances, and leave with some art!

Please contact TALA at 713-526-4876 or [email protected] to reserve your table or to donate art towards the auction.
