Private Dinner Reception with Michele Usibelli

July 31, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM


Join us Wednesday, July 31 for an intimate dinner in the gallery with Michele Usibelli, our featured artist for the month of August.  Michael Cartwright of Cartwright Catering here in Whitefish is preparing an exceptional four-course meal with wine pairings to match.

The evening begins promptly at 6:00 pm with a social cocktail hour with passed appetizers, and then we will dine in the center of the main gallery, surrounded by new works by Michele and our other renowned artists.  After dessert and coffee, there will be a question-and-answer session with Michele to talk about her artistic journey and her inspirations.  The evening will also feature a reverse auction – a painting Michele is creating especially for this evening will be available for sale at retail price initially, with the price dropping incrementally every 15 minutes until someone can’t resist it any longer!  This is sure to be a wonderful evening with fabulous food, incredible artwork and friends new and old.  Seating is limited to just 30 people, so be sure to sign up early to insure your place.
