Opening Reception at the 4 Pillars Gallery
Christine Carmichael: A Life by Design
Friday, June 17th 7:00-9:00pm

This show is to highlight and celebrate the personal and career accomplishments of interior designer, Christine Carmichael. The focus is mostly on her larger, more public design projects (The Grand, The Dayton House, The Wanda Gag House, and the Governor's Residence), but will also touch on a few more residential jobs as well as her role as a woman in business. We chose to wait until a year after her passing to have this show so it could truly be a celebration of Christine's life, and not be overtaken by mourning the loss of such a spectacular person. We will also be unveiling the portrait plaque that will hang in the Grand as a memorial to Christine and her work in the building. Her sister, Charis Carmichael-Braun, a New York based portrait artist, was commissioned to complete the portrait. Charis' husband, Andrew Braun, a wood-worker, created the plaque portion. The opening of the show is June 17th, 7-9pm at the Four Pillars Gallery in the Grand. The show runs through July 8th. Our hope is for friends, family, and anyone that knew and/or appreciated Christine and her work to come and remember and celebrate the life a great designer and a wonderful person.
Gallery Hours: Monday | Wednesday | Friday 10:00am-4:00pm
