Prepare to be swept away “from Provence to Paris.” Guests will embark on a journey through the gallery, travelling from the lavender-filled countrysides of Provence to the cosmopolitan charms of Paris at night.

Attendees will be welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine, before enjoying delicious food and drink pairings, and viewing the stunning works of art assembled solely for the evening.
