ABEX PAINTING PARTY

This is not your grandmother’s “sip & paint” class! Go on an after-hours tour of Women of Abstract Expressionism, enjoy an adult beverage with a friend, and join an area artist to create your own abstract action painting. The paint just might be flying...plan to dress for a mess, and bring your own beer or wine (no liquor permitted). Registration includes admission to the special exhibition, art materials, and instruction. The Mint will provide cups and snacks. Must be 21+.
