Purchase individual seats here for $300 or a full 8-person round table for $2250. Purchase tickets here or call Kathleen Cole at 970-728-3886.

Ah Haa is excited to announce its 2017 New Year’s Eve Gala artists – painter Charlotte Jorgensen and ceramicist and sculptor Julie McNair. These two local talents bring lots of color and humor to this year’s event, which starts at 5:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception and delicious nibbles by culinary artist Josh Klein.
Appetizers and preprandial chat is followed by an elegant five-course meal. Between courses, Charlotte and Julie talk about their work and inspiration, offering intimate glimpses into their lives as artists.
The celebratory evening concludes with dessert and a New Year’s toast – plus chance to once again walk around the gallery, peruse the artwork and wish your friends a very Happy New Year.
