Event: ISAE Star Awards 2009

Pin It In early December, the Indiana Society of Associaton Executives asked me to photograph their event at the Indianapolis Artsgarden. What an incredible venue! And what a great experience for me to shoot at such a location!

The evening started out with a privately sponsored reception. Dinner, drinks and conversation were had during the Silent Auction, where many items were on display. Bed & breakfast suite packages, Colts tickets, autographed books and art, restaurant gift certificates, yoga classes, gift baskets, and more were on display for ISAE members to bid on. All proceeds of the Silent Auction benefitted VSA arts of Indiana. Three artists demonstrated their talents during the Silent Auction as well. Thank you to Victoria Gillieron, Susan Semenick, and Jane Knight for allowing me to capture their art.

Solo Jazz Guitarist, Steve Newby, provided beautifully festive music for all in attentendance.

He is truly talented!

Jane Knight uses only her fingers to create beautiful works of art. It was amazing to watch her painting from start to finish in such detail.

City lights, cocktails, and smiling faces

Delicious desserts!

Festive table decor really set the fun, relaxed tone for the evening.

I love the lights and background frame this beautiful painting by Victoria Gillieron. Indianapolis is home to some very talented and creative souls!

These tickets were a hot item! Go Colts!

Once the Silent Auction ended, it was time for the awards.

Here are just a few of the award winners from the evening. It was clear that all of the winners have worked very hard and were very deserving of their honors. Congratulations to you all!
