Join us for an exciting evening celebrating Memory Painting: Harriet French Turner and Queena Stovall, as we enjoy an intimate conversation between curator Dr. Patrick Shaw Cable and two special guests.

Barbara Dickinson is a collector of Harriet French Turner's works and will be here to talk about her life and art; Sherry Flournoy is one of Queena Stovall's granddaughters and will share insights into the artist and woman she grew up with. This conversation will be followed by a trip to the galleries to view the paintings up close. 

Reserve your spot for this dynamic conversation today: $8 for adults, $5 for students/educators, free to members.
