“Nick’s artwork is energetic, bold, and fun,” says caterer Ryan Maerz. “His new paintings inspired our pairing of fresh flavors, geometric shapes, and bright colors.”

For event planner Austin Fremont of Fremont Blue Events, the party had special meaning. “I’ve known Nick for 25 years, and he is the most kind, tender, and sweet man.”

Caterer Ryan Maerz of Canard Inc served a special cocktail made from tequila and a hibiscus berry shrub. Vibrant floral arrangements in cloches underscored the theme of the art gallery.
