From 5:30 – 7:30 pm, guests will join artist, Nathalia Edenmont, for cocktails in the Bendel Mansion at the opening of her exhibition, Fruitfulness by Nathalia Edenmont, with live music by local musicians, John Lawrence and Rick Crossman.
Organized by the Flint Institute of Art, this collection of monumental photographs by the artist features elaborate compositions of garments constructed from unconventional, often organic, materials, with each piece taking up to 18 hours to create.
“We are very pleased to welcome Nathalia, who will be travelling from Sweden specifically for our opening,” said Jillian Casey, Curator of Collections & Exhibitions for the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. “This is a rare opportunity for the public to meet the artist and talk with her personally about the conception and creation of her beautifully arresting photographs.”
At 7:00 pm, Farm-to-Table guests will move on to SM&NC’s newly opened Knobloch Family Farmhouse for a Fall Farm-to-Table Supper, sponsored by First County Advisors. The evening’s menu will showcase Chef Alison Milwe Grace’s farm-fresh cuisine, with offerings that include cider-glazed braised organic chicken, maple-thyme dusted salmon, honey-apple roasted pork, local cheeses, wine pairings and an open bar.
“Delivering upon our mission, we invite the community to an inspired evening of events that embody robust rustic ‘fruitfulness’ in both art and flavor,” said Melissa H. Mulrooney, Executive Director & CEO of the SM&NC. “We encourage everyone to join us for this signature night out in our galleries and magnificent new Farmhouse in support of the Stamford Museum & Nature Center.”
SM&NC’s evening of events is suitable for adults only, and advance reservations are required.
