Patrons were also treated to milk (white Russians) and cookies, inspired by the artists Baking Pan Series and served by the gallery's in-house bartender/baker, Arnaud Couturier.
Keliy, Catherine and I would like to offer a warm thanks to all who attended and made this exhibit opening a great success!
