amount of resilience this past year and we’re committed to continuing to help them thrive. As in-person events continue to pick back up, we look forward to bringing new light and hope into people’s homes and art collections. Whether you’re a seasoned art collector or just looking for a new piece to add to your home, office or as a gift, I can guarantee you’ll find something at our Summer Series.”
