It might’ve been a chilly night, but Oysters on Telfair was the hottest ticket.
According to Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art’s Christina Berkshire, the event sold out.
About 250 people attended the party which featured an art auction. Bidding was done online while guests listened to the Cross Tie Walkers and enjoyed oysters by Becks.
Chase Lanier was one of the artists who donated items for the auction to benefit the Gertrude Herbert.
“I like show,” he said. “I like seeing what people bring to it.”
Some of the artwork played on the oyster theme, but others did not.
