The 3Rivers Arts” inaugural Masquerade Ball this Friday is looking like a sell out. Tickets to the dinner and Steampunk fashion show are, indeed, gone. But don”t worry, it”s not the end of the world… yet. Post-Dinner Dance Party tickets are still on sale, spokespeople for the group said, so you can grab a mask and come shake a Quetzal tail feather with the rest of the party goers.

The post dinner celebration includes several events, including the Art Emporium at the ball, featuring creations like the paintings of Mauricio Puente, Sr. and Katherine Moore, the kiln-formed glass art of Debbie Harary and the fantastical Roger Wood’s Jules Verne Steampunk Clock by artist Bruce Rosenbaum.

Miranda Hersey, of Open Studio Groton and a model in the fashion show, said, “There are so many people involved with this event — all working hard and contributing their particular skills. Ultimately, this will be a memorable evening that raises funds for 3Rivers, a vital arts organization. There aren’t too many opportunities to ‘get down” on the dance floor in this neck of the woods, so I hope that we get a great turnout of those who are ready to show their moves at the after-dinner party.”

Hair and stylistic details of the fashion show are being done by Michelle Florence, a freelance hair stylist who works at Body, Mind, Spirit Day Spa in Mill Run Plaza.

The the after-dinner events and dancing take place from 9:00-11:00 p.m. at Devens Common Center, 31 Andrews Parkway, on November 9th. Guests are invited to wear their own creative Mayan Steampunk attire and a mask (or purchase a handmade mask at the door).
