Art on the Rocks Recap & Photos

Last night’s Art on the Rocks — The Art League’s third annual art-inspired cocktail party — was a rousing success, with over 200 guests enjoying cocktails created for the evening and voting for their favorite. Thank you to everyone who came, to the participating restaurants, our volunteers, and our partners: the Pink Line Project and Catoctin Creek Distillery.

Bartenders from Bastille, Chadwick’s, Columbia Firehouse, The Light Horse Restaurant, Red Rocks Pizza Napoletana, and Union Street Public House participated. (You can see them demonstrate their creations on our YouTube channel.) And when the votes were tallied, returning champion Justin Matlak from The Light Horse won again with his cocktail titled “No Comparison.”

Justin Matlak hoists his trophy, an alcohol-themed creation by Torpedo Factory artist Lisa Schumaier.

Ticketholders went home winners too, with door prizes including tickets to see the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, a ticket to the 2013 Patrons’ Show, a gift certificate for an Art League class, and a Potomac Riverboat Company package for a water taxi ride and a meal at Rosa Mexicana.

The Gassmann Duo provided jazz music, and guests used our Old Town Editions photo booth to commemorate the evening. More photos below:
