Please remember our goal is to have consistent   “Showings”   on Wednesdays from 4-7.  Since we can only have  AOTB staff  plus 10 people at a time inside the gallery we ask that you invite your guests to accommodate that restriction.  We urge you to have them make an appointment, if they can,  to see the exhibit on a Wednesday from 4-7pm.  They can email AOTB at and state “I would like to arrange an appointment on Wednesday, Date  ____   __  at Time (4-7)  ______  ” .
