The Avon Theatre Film Center, CHANEL and SAKS Fifth Avenue at Stamford Town Center are pleased to collaborate with the talented contemporary artist, Fernando Luis Alvarez, on Friday, February 12, 2010 from 5:30 – 8:30PM for a very special Valentine's Day celebration of his indulgent lips on canvas. The party will be at his new studio, the Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery located at 96 Bedford Street in downtown Stamford.

In celebration of love and Valentine's Day, Fernando has teamed up with CHANEL, Saks Fifth Avenue, Stamford Town Center and the Avon Theatre to highlight the importance of local businesses working together to bring patrons to downtown Stamford to celebrate the arts. CHANEL, the premiere international cosmetic and fashion icon, will have several of their talented make-up artists on-site creating gorgeous lips on willing patrons while Fernando paints his iconic lips on canvas. Alvarez, together with CHANEL'S celebrity make-up artists will provide us with a fabulous live artistic event. Throughout the evening, Fernando will also hand out signed cards of original artwork featuring his lips. These works of art will, no doubt, be a wonderful way to celebrate Valentine's Day as a gift to your special love.

Collector Judyth Kallman who first discovered Alvarez believes his lip creations are "certainly the best art, corporate pairing work since Warhol's Campbell Soup cans…Fernando has found a magic kingdom in lips that no other artist (or for that matter) human beings have interpreted before. He guides us to see them from a different angle by showing us their power, indulgence, exuberance and the reading of their transparency, leaving them in our minds way after we are gone."

The Avon Theatre, located just one block from Fernando's gallery, is thrilled to welcome another artist to Bedford Street. The Avon is a non-profit member supported cinema featuring new independent, foreign and documentary films as well as cult classics. The theatre, which is celebrating over 70 years of timeless elegance on Bedford Street, will be kicking off their annual pre-Oscar® Film Festival the following morning, Saturday, February 13. All guests at the Luscious Lips celebration will receive a ticket to attend one of the Oscar®-nominated film festival screenings, which will be every Saturday and Sunday morning at 11:00AM from February 13 thru March 7.

SAKS Fifth Avenue at Stamford Town Center is committed to supporting local community events and is especially excited about this partnership with the Fernando Luis Alvarez gallery.

The Luscious Lips event is open to the public, but space is limited. Reservations are suggested and can be made at: chanelsaksavon@fernandoluisalvarez.com
Complimentary prize tickets can be picked-up at Saks Fifth Avenue at the Stamford Town Center and at the Avon Theatre until Wednesday, February 10th at 5:00PM.
