Join us for an evening alongside local artist, Sally Bradley. Bradley was born in Columbus, Georgia. She studied at the University of Georgia, Monash University in Australia, The Art Student’s League of New York, and the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). Her work explores the ideas of memory and restructured experience through landscape and figure. Bring your creativity and open mind—we will provide the supplies and light refreshments. Seating is limited and secured on first-come, first-served basis.
Featuring: Martha Clippinger
Patron Level members can join us for a special meet and greet with the artist behind Hodge Podge Lodge. Clippinger, a Columbus native, uses unique materials and displays to explore the relationship between fine and decorative art. Her vibrant palette reflects her joyful, energetic nature. Experience and discuss Clippinger’s works and use of complementary hues, material juxtapositions, and surprising placements. Refreshments will be served.
This event is reserved for Patron level members and above. RSVP by August 31.
