On November 19th, we hosted our Annual Community Art Gala, dedicated to giving young high school artists a platform to showcase their talents while creating an opportunity to engage with the local community. It was modeled after Chateau Mouton Rothschild and their wine bottle labels that feature different winning artwork for a similar contest they host. We wanted the event to be special and provide a platform for local young artists to be recognized and exposed to other professionals in the art world..
We invited local high school artists in Southern CA to compete for the honor of their artwork used for Houck’s Thanksgiving Card. This year’s winner was Cece Dale, a 9th grader from Pacific Palisades High.
What an incredible evening!
Cece Dale received a $2,000 scholarship fund along with her own Art Exhibit held at the Malibu Contemporary Art Gallery. It was a wonderful evening full of art, music, hot cocoa, wine, and more!
