You and yours are cordially invited to a week-long holiday celebration and collaboration between Marta and Stanley’s Gallery—a Fête, if you will. The opening of Marta’s Holiday Fête will take place on Saturday, December 11th from 5 – 8PM. The opening of Stanley’s Holiday Fête will take place the evening prior, on Friday December 10th from 7 – 10PM. We would love to host you for both celebrations, as they are one and the same. Both presentations will run through Friday, December 17th, with special holiday hours noted at left.
In the tandem spirit of collaboration, Marta and Stanley’s have colluded to present two dynamic exhibitions under the happy blanket of the overarching Holidays. Minjae Kim (via Marta) and Bennet Schlesinger (via Stanley’s) have created two new bodies of work that can be seen across both spaces, while works from other rostered artists and collaborators will be present as well. Moreover, Marta has placed works at Stanley’s, and Stanley’s has done the same at Marta.
The holidays are an occasion for reflection and togetherness. To that end and in that spirit, we hope you’ll join us as we ruminate in tandem on this past year and gather for two consecutive evenings of festivities, and perhaps a few enjoyable days thereafter in the lead-up to the New Year.
