Warhol 
is Here

Don’t miss your chance to see some of Andy Warhol’s most iconic works of art, on view this summer only at the High Museum of Art. Featuring more than 200 works, including his famous screenprint portfolios Marilyn Monroe (1967), Campbell’s Soup I (1968), Electric Chair (1971), and Mao (1972), the exhibition takes you on a journey through the late 20th century with some of the era’s most powerful and enduring images. The works in the exhibition are drawn exclusively from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation in Portland, Oregon. Remarkable for their nearly exhaustive range, the Schnitzer Collections offer an unparalleled opportunity to explore the breadth of Warhol’s influential graphic production over the course of four decades.

So. Gentleman 
Gives Back

Passion for Paws is a local Atlanta non-profit organization that partners with other animal rescues for fundraising, networking and rescue efforts. According to the American Humane Association, each year about 3.7 million animals are euthanized, thousands here in Georgia. While this problem is overwhelming, it can be solved if rescue groups have the volunteer and financial help to get these animals forever homes. Some of the biggest hurdles blocking rescue groups from getting animals forever homes is a lack of volunteers, publicity and money. Passion for Paws tries to fill that need. Please help Passion for Paws and join us for the Southern Gentleman Pet Soiree on June 7 from 6-10 p.m. on the Patios of Southern Gentleman and Gypsy Kitchen at the Shops Buckhead Atlanta. Your $25 donation in advance will entitle you to admission, one complimentary drink, light bites, live music and a silent auction. The “Who’s Who” of Atlanta is sure to be there in the heart of Buckhead Atlanta. All proceeds will benefit PAWS Atlanta and Good Mews rescues. $40 at the door.
