5:00pm-6:00pm Opening Reception, FREE!

We’re pleased to host two events (on the same day) with Artist-In-Residence Karen Atkinson–
First, join us for a toast for an Opening Reception for Karen’s wall collaboration with Bernard Brunon (That’s Painting) from 5-6pm.
Then, please drop by anytime 6-9pm for Karen’s Amuse Your Mouth Tapas Party, which she is structuring as a Fundraiser for Thank You For Coming’s Artist-In-Residence Program, and which will also mark the debut of her collection of recently hand-built, custom ceramic tapas dishes. The ceramics will be used to serve tapas made by artist-cooks invited by Karen to cook small bites, sweets, and sips. Attendees will be able to purchase the plates they eat off of (as well as others on display).
TAPAS ARTIST-COOKS: Karen Atkinson / Bernard Brunon / Nancy Ganucheau / Genevieve Erin O’Brien / Orly Olivier / Christopher Reynolds / Joanna Reynolds / Thank You For Coming
Karen Atkinson is an Artist-In-Residence for a full year at Thank You For Coming. She is working with us on building infrastructure, including making ceramics as an earned income strategy. Her one-of-a-kind small plates will be used to serve tapas for this event, and attendees are welcome to purchase the plates they are eating off of (as well as others on display). Karen is also working on individual dinner sets for one, which will be available soon at Thank You For Coming.
The artist-cooks listed above are working with Karen to fundraise for Thank You For Coming’s residency program by cooking and offering unique tapas dishes.
