VIP Reception Performance
Kristen Bloom Allen
Arc Entertainment Company
Kristen will perform a special ballet duet to live music during the last 30 minutes of the VIP Reception.
Kirsten has been reviewed as a “Beautiful dancer with a sensual style of movement that draws in her audience.” She has been a leading dancer for more than fifteen years. Most notably Kirsten danced a private performance for former President George H. W. and Barbara Bush. She also danced a series of shows at The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC displaying several exclusive works by the great choreographer George Balanchine.
Kirsten was featured in a ballet performance in Bermuda and performed multiple works in both Shanghai and Beijing, China. Most recently Kirsten danced a duet in the opener for The Wallflowers band for a concert benefiting the Wounded Warriors Project.
Kirsten is the founder and director of ARC ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY, her creative concept for adding the visual dimension of DANCE to the Concert Experience.
Art for Live Auction
The meticulously crafted paintings of Michael Summers are firmly rooted in contemporary west coast surrealism with a strong pop sensibility. He uses his Pop Surrealist style as a tool to reflect his inner vision: creating the impossible and more importantly, making the impossible seem plausible. The artist creates imaginary characters – often alluding to mythical archetypes – in acrylic paint with a keen hyper-attentiveness. His unorthodox use of intense saturation and arbitrary, multi-chromatic hues encourages the viewer to look a little closer, a little longer. The recognizable subjects of animals, automatons, and humans suddenly become magical and extraordinary. Yet, they somehow still retain the nostalgia of a child-hood memory that was once long forgotten.
With her PINK SAFARI collection Sabrina Rupprecht aims to raise awareness of endangered African wildlife, exemplifying the beauty of these majestic species and giving them an opportunity to be praised in the form of art. After spending a year travelling through Southern and East Africa, Rupprecht developed a love for the continent, its fascinating cultures, exhilarating nature and wonderful wildlife. Residing in Cape Town, South Africa, Rupprecht’s wildlife art is a reflection of her personal experiences, and an attempt to capture the essence and emotion of the animals with her own bright and vibrant interpretation of what she saw.
