Join us for an evening of food, music, art, and magic! The first annual Abundance Masquerade Ball at Wisehart Springs Inn on Pitkin Mesa in Paonia on December 6th.

A benefit for Elsewhere Studios’ Artist Residency Program. The enchanting Wisehart Springs Inn is a modern farm-castle, complete with spires, turrets, fountains and spiral staircases, and the perfect setting for this formal masquerade.

The evening will begin with a three course Harvest Dinner with local wine pairings catered by local chef Megan McMillan of North Fork Food

Susan Ellinger, acclaimed concert pianist, will accompany dinner with a private concert.

The event will transition to the Ball with a lively  ensemble and a silent auction to benefit the Community Supported Art Library.

The Elsewhere Studios Residency Program has hosted 84 artists from 8 countries and 17 states over the last three years. Visual artists, writers, composers, filmmakers, and performance artists have found time at Elsewhere to transcend life as they know it and explore their intellectual and creative vision, creating new and powerful work. Not only do our artists love the inspiration that comes with their stay at Elsewhere, but they are truly inspired by the natural beauty and the creative people of the North Fork Valley. The program not only benefits the visiting artists, but just as importantly, the resident artists enrich our local community through presentations, exhibitions, teaching classes and workshops, and through interactions and collaborations with our local artists. Our goal with the Ball is to keep these programs thriving and growing in years to come as well as to celebrate the evolution of Elsewhere Studios with costumes, music art and magic."
