Galactic Gala: A Cocktail Party and Auction to Benefit Investigation
Station and the New Port Richey Progress Energy Art Gallery
In an effort to raise money for the
museum, Gordon Engebretson, local artist who designed all of the images
for the From the Sun to Pluto exhibit, is donating images to Investigation Station for auction.
Local astronomers will have their telescopes set up for Gala guests to
view the heavens. Live music will be provided by local musicians
that make their own instruments. The event will be
held March 15, 2013 at the Atria Baypoint Village in Hudson on SR 52 from 6
to 9 PM. To buy tickets, please call
Lisa Campos (727-459-7331) or stop by the Progress Energy Art Gallery on Grand
Blvd, just south of Main Street in downtown New Port Richey.
From the Sun to
Pluto, is now officially open in Starkey Wilderness
Park!!! With artwork by Gordon Engebretson and fun
facts about each solar body by Michelle Cordeiro, everyone will be
impressed by the vibrant images and learn something new about our solar
system while biking or hiking this one-mile long exhibit. Park by shelter #5 and take
the foot path beside the restrooms out to the bike trail.
(Investigation Station volunteers, and supporters accompany Commissioner
Pat Mulieri and artist Gordon Engebretston in the ribbon cutting
ceremony for the From the Sun to Pluto exhibit.)
