On Saturday, January 7, due to popular demand, we've added a second performance by the one and only Paula Poundstone. The 7pm show is nearly sold out, but you can now get tickets to a 9:30pm encore! Poundstone is one of our country’s foremost humorists and a regular panelist on NPR’s, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me. You won't want to miss her hilarious live act in our intimate indoor venue.

On Monday, May 1, at 7:30pm, Montalvo favorite Marc Cohn returns. Since winning a Grammy for his soulful ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Cohn has solidified his place as one of the country's most compelling singer/songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. His concerts have sold out our Carriage House Theatre numerous times in the past few years, so be sure to get your tickets early!

Gestural Florals: Pen, Ink, and Brush Technique

Experiment with ink and learn how to draw flowers as living, moving elements in our final Montalvo Summer Nights class, Gestural Florals: Pen, Ink, and Brush Techniques.

In this fun and relaxed workshop, students will focus on capturing the spirit and personality of the blossoms and develop their own visual language for brush work. It is taught by professional artist Dana Harel.

All required art materials will be provided, as will a glass of wine and light hors d'oeuvres. It's a creative, low-pressure environment that's great for both beginners and experienced artists.
