Danielle Rollins uses her Southern roots to share Simple Little Things that you can do to entertain in your home and live a gracious lifestyle. She is well versed in juggling it all, relatable, and always encouraging, with a sense of humor as great as her personal style.

Bouquets: French Still-Life Painting from Chardin to Matisse 

The first major American exhibition to consider the French floral still life across the 19th century,  Bouquets: French Still-Life Painting from Chardin to Matisse showcases approximately 60 floral still lifes from painters such as Eugène Delacroix, Gustave Courbet, Henri Fantin-Latour, Édouard Manet, and Paul Cézanne to highlight the well-established painting genre in France during the 1800s.
