Few people realize that Isabella Gardner’s exquisite collection began with an interest in manuscripts and rare books, and that Gardner was an avid supporter of writers in her lifetime. Join us for conversation, lighthearted activities in the galleries, and cocktails by the courtyard, of course. Featured Event: Avant Gardner: Callithumpian Consort | 7pm Tickets sold separately, but include admission to Gardner After Hours. Tonight, the Callithumpian Consort concludes its year-long celebration of John Cage with a concert featuring music by Cage, one of his contemporaries in the New York School, and a third composer profoundly influenced by Cage's discoveries. Cash wine bar around the courtyard. Café G open for snacks, dinner, and drinks. TICKETING | Includes museum admission Adults / $15 Seniors / $12 Members / Free College students / $5 Students from colleges and universities participating in the University Membership Program receive free admission.

    "Evening of Words"!... Great! I am looking forward to all those (sounding soooo "delicious" :) ) "conversation, lighthearted activities... and cocktailes".... mmmmm.. yamiiii :)
    It's jus wonderful that we will be "partnering" with "Creative Writing" people, right? What if life deceives and baits you ~
    Never bridle, never grieve! ~
    Bide the dismal day, believe, ~
    That a day of joy awaits you! ~ By the future lives the heart ~
    And, if dreary be the present, ~
    All is fleeting, will depart.... ~
    And departed, will be pleasant! ~
    (1827) A.S.Pushkin, the greatest Russian poet
    Translation was made by the publisher Arndt in 1908.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
