Join us for an unforgettable evening of art and dining at Carnation Contemporary. Each dinner explores different themes—curiosity, the unknown, and the uncanny—creating a theatrical atmosphere where you can immerse yourself in these concepts through good company and the food we share.
We are delighted to invite you to experience Slipstream, an immersive exhibition by Brittney Connelly, accompanied by a dinner prepared by the talented Ellie Quackenbush.

If we reach full capacity, please sign up for the waitlist, as spots may become available. If you have RSVP'd but cannot attend, kindly cancel promptly so your spot can be offered to someone else.

Opening Dinner

July, 12th  from  6:30 -9:30

    Act 1: 
    A small child runs to a well stone in hand, 
    He peers down its center
    darkness glides down its round, hollow shape
    Possessed by something unknown 

    an invitation.



RSVP here (max capacity 10)

Mid Month Dinner

July, 19th  from  6:30 -9:30

    Act 2: 
      A man reads the paper while sipping a coffee
      a woman fusses with the buttons of raincoats on her two small children
      a determined wind blows 
      they are made to watch as the things before them 
      fly towards the sun
      a bus grunts in the periphery, 
      as a group lines up to board 
      few catch sight of this spectacle.

    RSVP here (max capacity 10)

      Closing Reception & Dinner

      July, 26th  from  6:30 -9:30

        Act 3:
        The lingering scent of the ocean, 
        residing on a vessel that has long met the shore
        it rests on the surface of anyone who comes near.
        Those afflicted carry the ocean home.
