Join us for
Thursday, March 2 from 6-8pm
Friends new and old are invited to join us for this month’s First Thursday Open House event, when we keep our lights on late and throw our doors open to celebrate the newest work in our galleries.
This March, the galleries are taken over by some of our Studios family. Michael Ross—one of our newest hires at The Studios—returned to his childhood home in Mississippi several years ago and began a series of handmade fabric quilts that take the shape of houses when suspended from the ceiling. They serve as a powerful metaphor for how we alter, affect and influence the places that we call home, just as they do to us. In the XOJ, 2020 artist-in-residence Sandra Williams displays highly intricate paper cut works created throughout the pandemic focused on the expressions of love–romantic, familial, spiritual, platonic, self-love. Plus, PEAR-alumna-turned-local-artist B Lucy Stevens invites audiences into her sketchbook, plastering the walls of the Zabar Project Gallery in 30 years worth of doodles, exploring her experiences with anxiety, depression, motherhood, marriage, and divorce. In the Zabar Lobby, preview the artworks from the Anne McKee Art Auction set for March 12.
Stop in to say hello, relax with a glass of wine on the rooftop terrace featuring live music from violinist Irie Monte, peek into the open third floor artist studios and see the just-installed exhibitions. Books & Books is the next stop, where you can browse the latest titles and catch up with old friends.
