An evening of wine, women and art will be held on Thursday, May 17, at the Stapleton Gallery to benefit Planned Parenthood of Montana.
The evening focuses on women producers of art and wine. Local artists, as well as the artists of the Stapleton Gallery, will be on display. Artist Jennifer Li will be doing a painting demonstration, and six wines from around the world by women winemakers will be presented by sommelier Emily Lemcke. The event is being curated by Abigail Hornik-Minckler and Jeremiah Young.
Hornik-Minckler said women are historically underrepresented in art museums. “Art has always been dominated by males,” she said. “It’s all about flipping it on its head and its perceptions. Women are wonderful artists and talented winemakers. We’re breaking through those barriers and are looking at it differently.”
Artists include Amber Jean Munch, Audrey Hall, Ben Pease, Jennifer French, Jennifer Li, Nancy Halter, Sherri Cornett and Kevin Red Star, among others. All pieces on display will be for sale, and artists will be donating from as little as $75 up to 100 percent of the proceeds from their art to Planned Parenthood of Montana. Ticket proceeds will also be donated.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Stapleton Gallery, located on the third floor of the Stapleton Building at 104 N. Broadway. Tickets cost $75. For information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
