“Creative Spirits: A Brush & A Drink,” is an interactive social gathering scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday at The Hyde Collection.

Guests will take part in an Andy Warhol-inspired guided painting experience paired with wine tasting.

Participants are asked to bring canned food items to use as painting props in celebration of the famous Warhol soup can image. Canned goods will be collected and displayed in a Warhol-inspired community installation and later donated to the Family Service Association of Glens Falls.

“A Brush & A Drink” marks The Hyde’s major June 21 exhibition opening of “The Late Drawings of Andy Warhol: 1973-1987.”

The exhibition features 50 drawings, some that will be on view to the public for the first time. This exhibition has been organized by The Andy Warhol Museum, one of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.

Andy Warhol drew prolifically. He drew as a child and continued drawing until his passing,” said Evi Fisher, The Hyde’s curator of education, in a statement. “This exciting event gives Warhol fans a chance to create their own iconic pop art through the painting medium, in addition to supporting a local cause.”

The Warhol exhibit will run through Sept. 27 in the Charles R. Wood Gallery.

The Hyde Collection is located at 161 Warren St. in Glens Falls.

The $40 “Brush & A Drink” fee ($30 for Hyde members) includes two drinks, admission and supplies.

For information call (518) 792-1761, extension 327 or email: efisher@hydecollection.org.

Also, a separate exhibit, “Homer’s America,” will be at The Hyde from June 21 to Sept. 16.

Winslow Homer (1836-1910) chronicled the events, places, and activities that shaped America in the second half of the 19th century. “Homer’s America” presents a selection of two dozen works from the museum’s permanent collection, mostly engravings, as well as watercolors, one oil painting and a rare etching that focus on key themes of his career including the Civil War, farming, children, heroism and the sea, recreation and the Adirondacks.
