After hours gatherings designed to engage the intellect and build community…that’s SEAD After Dark. We will feature discussion groups and talks by knowledgeable members of our community. We bring the facilitators, snacks and provide the venue. You simply register and bring your own beverage…wine and other favorite libations encouraged. These are informal, facilitated conversations among friends. Numbers will be limited to keep the conversations intimate and each setting will be designed to best suit the topic. Most SEAD After Dark events will be held in our library at the back of the gallery but we will occasionally adjust the venue to fit the topic. Registration is available for full courses (most topics span three evenings over three weeks time) or you can choose to register for only one night. Advance registration is required to ensure we manage our numbers and provide plenty of space and snacks.
Absurdly Pretty: the Victorian Era at a Glance
182 years ago Queen Victoria reigned. Britain was at peace, the economy was in a boom and homes were elegant, refined as well as intensely decorative. Join us at SEAD After Dark as we take a look back at the Victorian era’s aesthetic and reveal the era’s dirty little secrets lived by rich and poor alike. BYOB, be prepared to laugh, chat and learn by accident with facilitator Jenn Korolenko of TAMU’s Forsyth Galleries.
All SEAD After Dark classes are BYOB. Tickets are $10 and you must register to attend. To register, click HERE or visit our shop page.
