IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 28, 2016) - Astoria at Central Park West -- a luxury high-rise coastal living apartment community in Irvine that offers panoramic views and resort-style amenities -- is proud to present Art at the Park: Illuminating the Masters -- an exclusive, inaugural event showcasing the distinctive creative works of internationally acclaimed and award-winning Southern California artists Jon Seeman, Lorraine Passero and Alan Abraham. Hosted in partnership with The Soussé Group of HôM Sotheby's International Realty, the three-day private penthouse event will be held Friday, December 9 through Sunday, December 11.

A private showing in a luxurious penthouse suite overlooking land and sea -- as well as sumptuous hors d'oeuvres, drinks and live music -- will provide a truly intimate setting and a chance for patrons of the arts, including current Astoria residents, to meet the artists, each of whom has invested more than four decades into a body of work prized and collected worldwide."
