The event benefits the company's productions, artistic development initiatives and arts education programs.
Here's how the event is billed: "Portrait of an Artist features Ms. Lavin and Mr. Bakunas in a 90-minute intimate evening during which Ms. Lavin answers questions about her life and career, posed by her husband while he paints her portrait on stage. An evening of warmth, romance, humor and nostalgia, the couple has previously performed the program at venues around the country."
Bakunas is a painter, actor and jazz drummer. "Faces and Places," an exhibition of his multi-media art, opened at Trent and Company May 8. His finished portrait of Lavin will be raffled off by The Vineyard at the conclusion of the June 16 event.
