Allure + Prestige: Celebrating Valentine’s Passion the Latin Way

The gracious Sherri Cheung of Belle Fusion Art Facilitation Group reached out and invited Eco.Lux.Luv to attend the Allure + Prestige event at the historical Terminal City Club. The soiree in downtown Vancouver was held on Valentine’s eve was a wonderful way to celebrate love through charitable fundraising, sensual Latin dancing, tapas, bubbles and gorgeous art.

As guests checked in, they were immediately invited to show off their love of Latin dance and quickly joined the dance floor. Soon the hardwood was pulsating  with salsa dancing aficionado’s, hip shaking and shoulder rolling.

I must admit that I took advantage of Valentine’s invitation and created a work/date night and invited my notoriously shy husband to be my photographer for the evening. Unfortunately for me, he was in a very social mood and abandoned his duties once he saw the works by Dali and Chagall.

Apres the dance floor, invitee’s enjoyed tapas, champagne, and a perusal of the artwork on display from Chali-Rosso Gallery and the Kimoto Gallery. Two of our favourite Vancouver based galleries who were participating in the Eric Becker art auction.

The Kimoto Gallery brought a wide selection of pieces, including pieces by Michael Soltis, whose work had caught my eye during their December opening.
