Two Exclusive Member Previews at the HIGH Museum

Hello FRIENDS! -- come and join us for this Saturday afternoon of fun and art enjoyment. Also, we will meet-up after the exhibit at a nearby café (walking distance) for cakes, coffee and refreshments.

Your Host: Lance Payne

(NOTE: See important information about this exclusive preview at the bottom of the page.)

The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden

The Tuileries, a major Parisian tourist attraction, is one of the greatest public gardens in the world. The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden brings Paris to Peachtree Street, with picturesque boxed holly trees on the piazza, sculpture drawn directly from the grounds of the Tuileries, Impressionist paintings, and a three screen video of a stroll through the garden.

The Tuileries Garden lies at the heart of Paris, spanning the area between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde. For centuries, it has served as a gathering place for Parisians and visitors.

Art has played a critical role in the history of the Tuileries Garden. The Garden has inspired generations of artists and has also functioned as an outdoor museum, with works from the classical to the contemporary dotting its vast grounds. This exhibition presents works by Camille Pissarro, Édouard Manet, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and others who have taken inspiration from the iconic Parisian landmark, as well as sculpture from the garden never before seen in the United States.

Go West!

Art of the American Frontier from the Buffalo Bill Center of the West

Drawn from the unparalleled collection of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyo., Go West! features major works of art and important artifacts including paintings, drawings, sculpture, photographs, frontier firearms and objects from Native American cultures that showcase the exploration and settlement of the American West. Through these objects, the exhibition highlights the ways visual images and stories of explorers and legendary western celebrities such as Buffalo Bill Cody, Annie Oakley and Chief Sitting Bull continue to inform American identity and character today.

      Great. I am bringing a friend with me who's driving up from the southside, so we might be a little bit late. If I miss you in the lobby, maybe we can catch up with you in the gallery.

      Frances, depending on how late you arrive, I'm not sure which gallery we'll be in -- we have 2 exhibits to see. If you can't catch up to us, drop by Starbucks after you see the show(s). It's across Peachtree and south 1 1/2 blocks. You can't miss it. Lance

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.
