Stamford, CT - Stamford Museum & Nature Center invites the public to register for a special evening of events on Thursday, September 19, featuring the exhibition opening reception of Fruitfulness by Nathalia Edenmont, followed by SM&NC’s signature Fall Farm-to-Table Supper ($150/person), prepared by award-winning chef, Alison Milwe Grace.

From 5:30 – 7:30 pm, guests will join artist, Nathalia Edenmont, for cocktails in the Bendel Mansion at the opening of her exhibition, Fruitfulness by Nathalia Edenmont, with live music by local musicians, John Lawrence and Rick Crossman.

Organized by the Flint Institute of Art, this collection of monumental photographs by the artist features elaborate compositions of garments constructed from unconventional, often organic, materials, with each piece taking up to 18 hours to create.

Edenmont was born in Yalta in 1970, and moved to Sweden by the time she was 20, realizing that life in the Soviet Union was disintegrating and held no future for her. At 27, she was accepted to Forsberg Skola to study graphic design, where an artist mentor encouraged her to visualize her inner pictures and try to capture them with a camera. “I only look inside my head; what I see in my mind is what I create," said Edenmont. "I do not sketch; the image is complete and sharp within me. I have absolute control over all aspects of what I do.”

“We are very pleased to welcome Nathalia, who will be travelling from Sweden specifically for our opening,” said Jillian Casey, Curator of Collections & Exhibitions for the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. “This is a rare opportunity for the public to meet the artist and talk with her personally about the conception and creation of her beautifully arresting photographs.”

At 7:00 pm, Farm-to-Table guests will move on to SM&NC’s newly opened Knobloch Family Farmhouse for a Fall Farm-to-Table Supper, sponsored by First County Advisors. The evening’s menu will showcase Chef Alison Milwe Grace’s farm-fresh cuisine, with offerings that include cider-glazed braised organic chicken, maple-thyme dusted salmon, honey-apple roasted pork, local cheeses, wine pairings and an open bar.

A food industry veteran, Chef Grace is the owner/Chef of AMG Catering and Events of Wilton, which has won many awards including the Best of the Gold Coast. “Great food makes people happy,” said Grace. “I provide the freshest, most delicious food served in a professional and friendly atmosphere.”

“Delivering upon our mission, we invite the community to an inspired evening of events that embody robust rustic ‘fruitfulness’ in both art and flavor,” said Melissa H. Mulrooney, Executive Director & CEO of the SM&NC. “We encourage everyone to join us for this signature night out in our galleries and magnificent new Farmhouse in support of the Stamford Museum & Nature Center.”
