Learn more about the recently unveiled portraits of the Obamas and a long history of official, and not so official, images of those who have led the nation. We will explore works that range from the portraits of George Washington by Gilbert Stuart to Kehinde Wiley’s new image of Barack Obama. We will also compare images of First Ladies from George Catlin’s painting of Dolly Madison to Amy Sherald’s portrait of Michelle Obama. Serious and witty, regal and absurd…we will look at examples across the spectrum.

Space is limited due to the intimate setting of Yellow House. Registration, with a nominal fee, is required to hold your spot. Your $8 includes the gallery talk, wine, a glimpse of the latest exhibition, great conversation, and supports the mission of Yellow House. Doors open at 6pm, talk starts at 6:30pm.
