Join us at Mon Ami Gabi Reston on Tuesday, June 6, and Wednesday, June 7, at Mon Ami Gabi Bethesda, for an evening of delicious french fare, thought-provoking art and great conversation, featuring artist Tennessee Loveless and ArtInsights gallery owner Leslie Combemale.
The renowned contemporary artist and contemporary art expert are partnering with the restaurant group Lettuce Entertain You, hosting the Art Outsiders Wine Dinner in both locations. Tennessee and Leslie will present Loveless’s famed project “The Art Outsiders,” discussing the creative process behind the development of the project.
The Art Outsiders is a collection of portraits of people who were outsiders in their own fields for work. From science, music, art, writing, fashion and beyond, their stories are uniquely embedded into the design of each portrait, allowing each work of art to display a narrative of history, courage and perseverance.
Evening includes a welcome reception with passed hors d’oeuvres starting at 6:30 pm, followed by a five-course dinner paired with boutique wines. Click here to see the full menu. The event is priced at $75 per guest (plus tax, gratuity not included).
