Get A Glimpse

May 5, 2017

At this spring’s​ Glimpse 2017 fête, ​W​atkins introduced​ ​more that 250 ​art lovers and the art-curious to up-and-coming talents whose work ​they would be wise to know about and collect now​. Guests toured and purchased pieces from these emerging masters while also noshing on creative small plates lakeside, listening to The Ukedelics and the vinyl-spinning of Third Man Records, and sampling the specialty drink “The Silo,” which celebrated the April opening of the converted grain silos Watkins artists will now use as studio space. Moving from a funky lounge space to the galleries to the Watkins theatre to take in student films, Glimpse 2017 demonstrated the profound connection between a thriving city and a thriving creative class.

Glimpse 2017 artists were: David Onri Anderson, Ashley Doggett, Lee Ann Hawkins, Mary Jeffords Hawkins, Stephan Micheletto-Blouin, Grace Pavlic, Elizabeth Sanford, Sarah Taylor, Sandra Ventura- Benitez, and Sean-Tyler Walton.
