Peggy Pierce Elfvin Director Janne Sirén, his wife Sonja, and chairpersons Linda and Bill Maggio, Jr., welcome Albright-Knox Members to celebrate the Art of Dining and experience the exceptional culinary talents of Buffalo’s master chefs. The Art of Dining: An American in Paris is inspired by Humble and Human: An Exhibition in Honor of Ralph C. Wilson, Jr., an exhibition of more than forty paintings and sculptures from the collections of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Detroit Institute of Arts by artists including Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

Guests will enjoy appetizers crafted by Oliver’s Chef Ross Warhol, followed by a sumptuous dinner artistically prepared by Chef Mike Dimmer of Marble + Rye and Chef Mike Andrzejewski of Seabar and Cantina Loco. The night will conclude with a spectacular dessert conceived by Chef Mark Hutchinson of Hutch’s.
