About the Event
Paintings & Pairings began in 2012 as a smaller gathering of Insight supporters who came together to enjoy the creative pursuits of our day center participants. Our art therapy program had just begun, and we saw the event as a wonderful way to highlight our participant’s talents. All of the paintings were for sale, along with a few tempting raffle item packages. And of course, what would an evening be without a little food or drink? We welcomed our guests with delicious hors d’oeuvres that were paired with chef recommended wine selections for an extra treat. And thus Paintings & Pairings was born, as we celebrated Insight through art and wine.
The event has grown each year, from 100 attendees in 2012 to nearly 400 at our last in-person event in 2019. With the pandemic, the event went virtual in 2020 and 2021, but still allowed for all the fun on our virtual event platform. Each year we've remained true to our roots with original elements of the event. Paintings include participant artwork, along with the works of local artists who are connected to our center and our cause. We have also expanded the raffle into a full silent and live auction, providing even more fun – and friendly competition! – during the event.
As we look to return in-person this year, what won't change is that all the proceeds from the event ensure families and our community are getting the support and care they need when faced with a dementia diagnosis. Thank you to so many that have celebrated with us from the beginning, those that have celebrated virtually, and of course those who attend Paintings & Pairings for the first time this year!
