The first 2013 T4A networking event sponsored by Triangle Modernist Houses

February 14, 2013 (Hillsborough, NC) -- Leland Little Auction & Estate Sales, Ltd., a premier North Carolina auction gallery in Hillsborough NC, will host Triangle Modernist Houses’ (TMH) popular “Thirst4Architecture” happy hour event on Thursday, March 14, from 6-8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

This will be the first of the 2013 spring/summer TMH Thirst4Architecture events, which serve as networking opportunities for anyone interested in architecture and design, including architects and designers. The host business or organization provides refreshments.

“We welcome Modernist homeowners, architects, artists, designers, realtors, engineers, contractors, property investors, building managers, Modernist homeowners, materials and furniture dealers, and anyone else with a huge crush on great architecture,” said TMH founder and director George Smart. “T4A events focus on building relationships, generating passion about good design, creating strategic alliances, and connecting people to each other.”

This will also be the first time Leland Little Auction & Estate Sales (LLAES, Ltd.) has hosted a T4A event.

"We aim to introduce our auctions to local and regional Modernist aficionados and collectors,” said Leland Little, auctioneer and founder. “We applaud what Mr. Smart has developed with TMH -- an effective and energetic group of Modernist supporters -- and we appreciate the opportunity to serve this cause by opening our gallery doors wide for the first T4A event of 2013."

The LLAES, Ltd. auction gallery is located at 620 Cornerstone Ct, Hillsborough, NC 27278 (919-644-1243). For directions and more information, visit www.llauctions.com.
