Party Like It’s 1929 is the theme for the Station House Express fundraising benefit event for the Station House Studio and Gallery Society.

The gala is set for Friday, April 8 starting at 7 p.m. “until late.”

There will be 1920’s themed light appetizers, a wine and beer bar, live music, auctions, and more, says gallery executive director Diane Toop.

“Don’t forget it’s a fundraiser, Toop says. “Get into the era and party like it’s 1929, errr, before the market crashed that is.”

Musicians will include the Cabaret Dixie Band, Brian Sawyer, Carmen Mutschele, Brent Morton and Ciel Patenaude, as well as the vocal trio Synergy.

Participants are invited to dress sharp in 1920s style as there will be prizes for the best attire.

Part of the fundraising will include a 1920’’s photo studio where people can have their picture taken by a professional photographer in their period costumes.

The evening will include the opening reception for two fantastic exhibitions, Toop adds.

All Aboard a group show in the main gallery features artistic creations dedicated to the Station House. Upstairs Absent Reverie features the work of Rhandi Sandford.

Advance tickets are $25 and available at the Station House Gallery  gift shop.

The gallery society is also looking for donations of art work and other items for the auction.
