PNC Bank Presents Gantt After Dark

The air is crisp but it’s cozy inside.

Spend time exploring our amazing exhibition, Quilts and Social Fabric: Heritage & Improvisation.  This exhibit uses the work of one of the most renowned artistic quilt makers, Faith Ringgold, as an entry point to look backward at traditional African American quilts and forward to decorative and artistic quilts.  It also encompasses the work of painters and mixed media artists who improvise upon the form.  You’ll leave with a completely different impression of what a quilt is and can be.   

5th & York will provide the soundtrack for the evening.  With a set list that covers the music of Grover Washington Jr, Kirk Whalum, Stevie Wonder and Norman Brown, 5th & York’s smooth jazz groove is the perfect complement.


Paint & Sip With Cathay Dawkins

At 7:00 pm, sip wine and indulge your inner artist.  Enjoy an evening of relaxation, wine-tasting and guided painting for only $25 ($20 for members).  All art supplies, instruction and a complimentary glass of wine are included. Additional drinks are available for purchase throughout the painting session. Seating is limited to 20 participants.
