What: Fifth Annual Art Bites

Where: Russell Collection Fine Art Gallery

The lowdown: Last Thursday, art-loving foodies gathered for a night of two of their favorite things at the Russell Collection Fine Art Gallery. Chefs from an array of restaurants, including Cannon + Belle, The Carillon, Fixe, Geraldine's, Oasthouse Kitchen + Bar, and more, prepared playful bites inspired by works displayed at the gallery.

In addition to these tasty treats, guests enjoyed wine, Tito's cocktails, music from DJ Gatsby, and a fun photo booth. Proceeds will benefit Hopefully Sow, a local nonprofit supporting foster children.
