Henderson Resort Art Wave Event Benefits South Walton Artificial Reef Association Jan 10

January 3, 2019 by SoWal Staff

The Henderson Resort and Spa in Destin is hosting Art Wave, an art exhibition celebrating local artists who have works displayed throughout the resort, as well as new pieces from their latest collections.

On Thursday, January 10, 2019 from 6-9 p.m., attendees have the opportunity to view live paintings and mingle with the featured artists, including Jeff Waldorff, John Maher, Justin Gaffrey, Lori Drew, Mary Hong, Melissa Mercer Brown, Tony Mennillo, and Velia Lala, in the Crystal Ballroom of The Henderson. There will be light bites, refreshments, and a silent auction held throughout the evening. Select pieces from each artist will also be available for purchase. Guests will also enjoy music by DJ 30A, complimentary valet, and a photo booth provided by Epic Photo Co.

100% of the money raised through ticket sales and auction proceeds will benefit the South Walton Artificial Reef Association (SWARA), a non-profit aimed at the construction, deployment, and monitoring of permitted artificial reefs in Walton County’s Gulf of Mexico coastal waters in order to benefit the underwater habitat and ecosystem.

Tickets are available for $40 and include full access to the sophisticated bazaar, food, beverage and entertainment while celebrating local artists at The Henderson. Visit for more information and to purchase your ticket.
