On Saturday, May 4 the exhibition will kick off with two events. Both opening day activities will be led by Patricia Tribastone, PSA. The first is a Continental Breakfast and Gallery Walkabout from 9:30-11am. Patricia will lead a group discussion about paintings displayed in the 2013 exhibition. She will cover a wide variety of topics using original artwork as a visual, providing specific examples as well as inspiration for audience members. The second event is “Drink and Draw” a pastel still life demonstration by Patricia and wine tasting from 3-5pm.
