The Chesterton Art Center will host the 5th annual Art After Dark Gala at 6 p.m. Nov. 1 at Sand Creek Country Club. The event will include an open bar, dinner, dancing and a silent auction with funds going towards art education programs at the Chesterton Art Center. Each year the Chesterton Art Center offers art classes to people of all ages and all ability levels.

Cocktails will begin at 6 p.m. with dinner to follow at 7. The silent auction and dancing will commence after dinner. Silent auction items will include artwork, photography, jewelry and other handcrafted items from local artists, Gary South Shore Railcat tickets, a Sand Creek Yearly Membership or Golf Outing, plus a Las Vegas trip, including airfare.

The local 4th Street Theatre will be providing entertainment as part of the evening's festivities. This year, the Art Center will be honoring Marsha Demkovich, a long-time children's art instructor, talented artist and valuable member of the Art Center.
