The Artumnal Gathering

We’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you who made this year’s Artumnal Gathering the most splendid and elegant Artumnal to date! The evening was full of dear friends, impressive performances, irresistibly danceable live music, and surprising delights for the eyes and ears at every turn.

Thank you to the 200+ volunteers, artists, performers, and crew who contributed their talents and energy to the event, and thank you to all who attended. The Artumnal Gathering is truly a communal effort and celebration of our artists and culture. We can’t wait for next year!

If you attended and have any questions about auction items, lost and found, or anything else, please feel free to reach out to us at artumnal .

2014 was an incredible year for the Flaming Lotus Girls! With your support and contributions, BRAF and FLG were able to fund the installation of Soma on Pier 14 in San Francisco. This public display was a dream come true for the artists! In addition, they continued to show fire art at events throughout California and Nevada.

Help FLG keep their momentum going and support this fundraising event!
