(Brookline, MA – April 13, 2007) The Brookline Arts Center will celebrate the installation of its new outdoor sculpture garden, “Conversation Pieces” with a gala opening reception on Saturday, May 5, from 7 to 10 pm.

Reception guests will enjoy a large tasting menu and select wines. The Boston Guitar Project, a group of guitarists dedicated to enriching the Boston-area community with live music performances, will provide musical accompaniment at the event. . Brookline-based author Linda Barnes, writer of the Carlotta Carlyle Mystery Series, will be the special guest of the evening.

The evening will also feature a silent auction of exciting gifts donated by local businesses, philanthropists and organizations. Attendees at the reception will be able to find bargains on vacation weekends, fine jewelry, sports items, antiques, and fine arts, while engaging in fast-paced silent auction bidding.

Money raised at the gala opening reception will support art and education programs at the Brookline Arts Center, a beloved community center that has been offering visual arts education since 1964. The gala has been sponsored by Chobee Hoy Real Estate Associates, Our Town Brookline and Sven and Rosamond Vaule.

The sculptures will be on exhibit on a rotating schedule.
