Are you ravenous for deeper learning about art? Join one of our skilled Gallery Attendants each month for an insightful perspective on an AGA exhibition or exhibited artwork, and then explore the core themes through looking at art together.

This month, we’ll explore David Altmejd’s The Vessel; a monumentally scaled, plexiglass sculpture that exemplifies movement, transformation and the act of artistic creation.
