We strive to offer creative, stimulating events to complement our exhibitions. There might be a gallery talk by an exhibiting artist, our curator or a docent; or a workshop in our art studio; perhaps an exhibition-related lecture, such as when we explored bonsai, ikebana, sushi and saki and the tea ceremony during a kimono exhibit; or when Gee’s Bend quilters performed gospel music, conducted quilting workshops and took the first stitches in a community quilt. See our Calendar for what’s on the schedule.
