1622 State Route 332. Class descriptions on the website….
Serge has just spent a small fortune on a painting, a white background patterned with white lines. His longtime friends think he’s lost his mind. What begins as a friendly discussion of personal taste rapidly devolves into a scathingly funny all-out war as the guys take off the gloves and share their opinions of art-and each other. Some adult language.
