The Art of Magic

The Country Inn ~ Berkeley Springs ~ WV

The Morgan Arts Council’s Signature Fundraising Event

Please be our guest  for Art & Elegance 2019-The Art of Magic. Saturday, November 9th, 2019, once again at the lovely Country Inn in Berkeley Springs, WV. As more of the details fall into place, we’ll be posting them here, and on our Facebook page. So save the date, and start gathering up your most magical party best! Alacazam!

We have been making plans to shake things up a bit, and we’ll be revealing them as things fall into place. We think what we have in mind will be fun and exciting and a bit of a change-up. Stay tuned!

However, we can share that the evening’s festivities will feature a magical performance by master illusionist Michael Cantori.

Michael Cantori is one of the region’s premier illusionists, whose wondrous entertainment astounds and amuses all ages.  Highly-skilled, personable and unique, his repertoire includes an audience-interactive blend of visual magic, superb sleight-of-hand, mental mysteries, magical lore, and a quick wit.  He’s entertained congressmen, senators, generals, rock stars and royalty, and has been featured in media such as The Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun, Fox News, and The Washington Post.

Fish Sculpture, Mark Schwenk, Frog Valley Artisans

We are also thrilled to announce that one of our featured Artists will be Mark Schwenk, of Frog Valley Artisans, a hometown favorite, photographer, and a master of artistic forged metal! We can’t wait to see what he comes up with!
