THE SCENE: Blue Star Contemporary (BSC) recently presented its most-beloved annual fundraiser to much acclaim. This year, BSC’s 28th Annual Red Dot event honored patrons Alice and Eric Foultz and artist Anne Wallace for their significant contributions to San Antonio’s creative landscape.
THE VIBE: The theme, Creative Playtime, had guests enjoying numerous creative play activities such as making their own stop-motion animations and enjoying live performance art… all while enjoying light bites and cocktails.
Honoree Alice Foultz has contributed her art expertise and helped shape many high-profile collections throughout San Antonio and beyond. She and her husband Eric Foultz’s support of artists and the cultural arts is boundless as demonstrated by her previous service on the Texas Commission on the Arts, The President’s Committee for the Arts and the Humanities, San Antonio’s Public Art Board, and more. A recipient of BSC’s Berlin Residency Program in 2016, honoree Anne Wallace’s work can be seen in widespread collections both locally and internationally.
THE CAUSE: The event was chaired by Lauren Kate and Peter J. Holt. Red Dot supports San Antonio’s artists and its longest-running space for contemporary art through sponsorship and art sales. With 100 artworks offered for sale with the proceeds equally shared between the contributing artists and BSC, Red Dot introduces San Antonio artists to collectors by fostering relationships, cultivating the arts community, and enriching the creative economy.
