Please join us for a gala fundraising event. February 18, 2018, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Legendary, Masterful & Rare, paintings by artist Katlin Kirker, is an exhibition that features over 40 individual portraits of endangered species alongside and interposed with prominent celebrity icons. Kirker introduces a whole new narrative to the human/animal portrait dynamic. And while the striking images she created will remain frozen in time and the celebrity icons continue to be legends, the unique animal species portrayed in the paintings may soon become extinct.

The evening will also feature Nick Zachar’s short documentary film Saba: The Unspoiled Queen showcasing a Dutch Caribbean island that should be looked upon by the rest of the world as a model of conservation excellence.
