Oysters on Telfair 200th Birthday Bash

On November 8, 2018, the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art will host its annual fundraiser, Oysters on Telfair. The evening event, now in its 14th year will also serve as the 200th anniversary birthday bash for historic Ware’s Folly. Nearly 300 guests will enjoy delicious Cajun cuisine from Becks, LIVE music by the Crosstie Walkers and a silent art auction of works from regional artists making Oysters on Telfair one of Augusta’s favorite fundraisers. Money raised will benefit the preservation of Ware's Folly.

Listed on the National Register, the grand is considered one of the finest examples of Federal architecture. The Institute remains the only non-profit contemporary gallery and visual arts school in the region, offering a rich calendar of nearly 30 exhibitions by regional and national artists.  Today the structure's architectural features shine much as they did in the 1800s, displaying the artisanship of a bygone era in contrast to contemporary artwork.
