The Bridge’s Evolutional Evening will be held on Friday, November 23, 2012 and will feature a gastronomic 3-course menu by Chef Nicolas, live musical entertainment and an auction.

The festivities begin at 5:30 pm with cocktails and the auction followed by dinner.

The cost of attending the cocktail reception is Rp. 150,000 (US$15.65) and the 3-course dinner Rp. 495,000 (US$51.50)

Proceeds from cocktail, dinner, auction, and sales of all art on display until March 2013 will help support Bali Peduli’s efforts to assist women and children at risk of HIV/AIDS.

“Bridges is proud of its ongoing program, Building Bridges In Our Community“ says Bridge’s founder Claude Chouinard, “and we are especially pleased to support a much-needed HIV/AIDS clinic in our under-served area, where over 1% of pregnant women are HIV+. Participation by Rotary Club Bali Ubud Sunset also helps us increase our impact and builds yet another Bridge in our community.”

The Artist – I Ketut Karyana

I Ketut Karyana's unique artistic technique combines watercolors with oil and ink, used to explore his latest series of painting themed: Evolution.

Born on Lombok and nurtured in a government-sponsored art community in Mataram, Karyana also drew early inspiration from Bali’s rich art scene to develop his own organic style. Karyana is fascinated by the idea of evolution, saying, “the diversity of forms in the universe remains a mystery, and inspires me to create new forms of living beings.”

Karyana’s art will be available for viewing and purchase from November 16 through March 23.
