Behind the Canvas


You’re invited for an intimate evening among like-minded women to experience Summer Wheat’s Catch and Release exhibit as we explore the themes of transformation, creativity, and female strength. Join us for a walk-through of the exhibition and a fireside chat with Shulamit Nazarian in her artistic space. Together, we will discover different voices through art and connection.


Summer Wheat’s paintings present a tradition in which women were the original hunters, technologists, and artists, and Catch and Release continues her exploration of this archetype and its many variations.


Wednesday, October 17 at 7:00PM
Location: Shulamit Nazarian Gallery


Ticket Price: Individual $25


Snacks and spritzers provided.
