Plein Air Easton Speaking Events
July 20, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Troika Gallery, in close partnership with The Avalon Foundation, is proud to present two outstanding speaking events during Plein Air Easton.
On Thursday, July 18 at 7 p.m., there will be a special presentation by Dr. Andrea Bayer, Deputy Director of Collections and Administration of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Her presentation is entitled “Behind the Scenes at The Met.”
VIP tickets include reserved cabaret seating at the Avalon Theatre lecture and a Meet & Greet Reception at Troika. The reception will be catered by Gourmet By the Bay. Tickets to this highly anticipated talk at the Avalon and Troika Reception (limited to 40 guests) are now on sale.
On Saturday, July 20, at the Avalon Theatre, enjoy An Evening with Raoul Middleman, Legendary Artist, as he discusses his acclaimed art career and an upcoming documentary film. Raoul has been associated with Troika Gallery for 22 years through his friendship with the gallery owners. Now at the age of 84, he is the focus for Madeline Becker, Film Producer, and Director of “Middleman,” which is set to release in 2020. “Middleman” follows Raoul from his daily work in the studio, as Dean of Painting at The Maryland Institute College of Art, and in his revered place in the American Art World. An Evening with Raoul Middleman begins at 7 p.m.

Troika will exhibit the paintings of six Plein Air Easton Alumni, as well as a Judge/Jurist, from July 16 through August 1. This exhibit features gallery artists who have participated in Plein Air Easton from past years.
