Nimbash 2018 Press Information & Materials

April 1, 2018; St. Helena, CA: Nimbus Arts, the St. Helena-based nonprofit community art organization serving the Napa Valley, announces the opening of ticket and table sales for the 9th annual NIMBASH. The always-sold-out event is one of the areas most anticipated fundraisers.

NIMBASH sponsorship, ticket, table, and auction sales support Nimbus Arts and its mission to ignite artistic expression across the Napa Valley and provide art education and activities throughout the community.

An utterly original “a r t y p a r t y”, NIMBASH combines interactive art activities, live music and performance art, a spectacular art fashion show created by the Ehlers Society, farm-to-table food and superlative wines, silent and live auctions, and an after-burner dance party into an unforgettable event.

Each NIMBASH is a unique work of art in and of itself, with a fresh theme that carries through every detail. Our 2018 NIMBASH theme celebrates the idea of WANDERLUST, inviting you to get lost in the desire to explore and wander in the experience of art!

NIMBASH guests arrive to participate in dynamic hands-on art activities while sampling some of the Napa Valley’s most acclaimed wines and tasty treats from noted local restaurants. Our evening’s featured event begins with our famed sizzling ART fashion show by the Ehlers Society, followed by the lively live auction showcasing the works of acclaimed artists, lavish travel packages, superlative wine lots, and more. The wild, after-burner dance party extends NIMBASH into a late-night celebration.

Over 350 art lovers, philanthropists, and community leaders from California and across the country join more than 100 Nimbus Arts’ artists and collaborators for this annual celebration of art, wine, music, food, and fashion. “The magic of NIMBASH is that it so beautifully reflects the incredible generosity and artistic spirit of Napa Valley,” said Jamie Graff, co-founder and Executive Director of Nimbus Arts.

A sneak-peek preview reception showcasing many of the lots offered at the NIMBASH silent and live auction will be held at Martin Design on Friday, May 4, from 5:00–8:00pm. Located in Adventist Health St. Helena at 1350 Main Street, Martin Design has been a Nimbus Arts and NIMBASH supporter from the start.
