We will get a closer look at this dynamic art scene as we visit 3 women—owned galleries.  They will talk about art as well as how they started their galleries.  All are located in the West Chelsea Arts Building, a center for acclaimed and cutting-edge creative visions.

A special reception will cap off the evening, where we will enjoy wine with desserts.
