You’re invited to an artist evening at Bardessono. Please join us at Lucy Restaurant for an intimate dinner with our featured Artist In Residence, Cara Barer. Cara is presented by Andrea Schwartz Gallery, Bardessono’s San Francisco gallery partner, and will share her journey into and through the world of art. The dinner allows 16 guests to enjoy exquisite culinary and wine parings inspired from Cara’s world travels while hearing her story and seeing her latest pieces.

Guests will learn how Cara’s world changed when she saw a rain drenched phone book many years ago. She has committed her new line of work to being uplifting and bright to combat the difficulties faced during the pandemic. She has intentionally used her time during the past year to focus on new images and use supplies from in and around her own home.
