Celebrate new exhibitions and the women who inspire us.

Join artists Mary Bergs and Lisa Hochstein inside their collaborative exhibition, Correspondences, for an intimate gallery conversation about their process and the trust and humility it required.

Mother/daughter artists, Wendy Rolfe and Thérèse Mulgrew will be introduced by actress Kate Mulgrew inside their exhibition. Surrounded by 30 portraits, they will talk about the joys and challenges of integrating artistic and family life and how that shows up in Intimate Exchange.

The party continues with cocktails, music and art-making that celebrates the women who influence us—so, bring someone who inspires you.
