Champagne Reception with Shelley Reed
August 10, 20145:30 - 7:30 p.m.Experience a rare opportunity to tour an exhibition with the artist who created the work. Boston-based artist Shelley Reed gives a tour through the galleries to discuss the inspiration and the process behind the pieces in Animal Instinct: Paintings by Shelley Reed.
Reed's fascination with works by the Old Masters has led her to bring a modern take to those allegorical pieces by creating large-scale paintings full of intricate details and rendered completely in black and white. Hear from the artist herself what drives this compelling process. Cap off the tour with a champagne toast, then join us for a reception with hors d'oeuvres and a beer and wine cash bar to share more of your thoughts with Reed and your fellow museum-goers.
