Merrily carefully leads you on a tour to her hand picked locations and then uses her wealth of knowledge to explain the history of the artist, their creative process and the meaning behind it. It's very relaxed, you don't have to be a big art...More

The review with Merrily was thoughtful to display different mediums of art. In a small group it moved at a good pace and was informative. Well worth attending. My teen boys and I reflected and discussed the pieces after, we would all attend again.
