Tuesday, August 22, 2017 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Cocktails and Canapés – Curator-Led Tours of Still Life: Karin Broos

It’s triple-winning combination—a curator-led tour of the Still Life: Karin Broos exhibition, two customized cocktails and four fine FIKA canapés. Take a private evening stroll through the galleries and Mansion with long-time, ASI curator, Curt Pederson.

Still Life features the work of Broos, one of the most acclaimed artists working in Sweden today, making her U.S. debut at ASI. Her photo-realistic oil paintings offer a uniquely female perspective, often focusing on her daughters and grandchildren, set in contemplative scenes of her home and the forests and lakes from around Värmland, Sweden.

The exhibition encompasses about 50 paintings, created from 2011 to present, with many being shown publicly for the first time. Join Pederson to learn more about Broos' techniques, the symbolism and significance of location in her art as well as Broos’ stature as an artist in Sweden.

What’s more, enjoy the award-winning, FIKA Café’s light bites and cocktail creations!
