This year’s meeting and open house will take place this Saturday, November 16, from 11 am to 3 pm at the studio-gallery in Silvermine, at 30 Borglum Road, Wilton, Connecticut (see directions below).
- Four pictures which the CSF has acquired in the past year will be on display, including a lovely painting (below) not seen for many decades.
- CSF president Carl B. Schmitt, Jr. will present a progress report on the book he is now writing on his father’s thought, one he has been pondering for a number of years. Vice-president Sam Schmitt will report on developments at the Foundation, including new exhibitions and some exciting future plans.
- As always, there will be plenty of opportunity to catch up with family and friends at the luncheon following the meeting.
- Plus, copies of the book, Carl Schmitt: The Vision of Beauty will be available at 25% off—just in time for Christmas!
We’d be delighted to see you there!
