Last year, the Good Goat Gallery celebrated the life and work of legendary filmmaker and actor Vincent Price with a group art exhibition and special themed dinner at Luxe Kitchen & Lounge. The celebration brought Price’s daughter Victoria to Cleveland. This week, author, art collector and inspirational speaker Victoria Price returns to Cleveland for her own exhibition at the Good Goat Gallery, a presentation at the Cleveland Museum of Art and another themed dinner at Luxe.

At 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 7, Victoria Price will visit the Cleveland Museum of Art to discuss the importance of the art collector as a “tastemaker, guardian and perpetuator of the visual arts for future generations.” She will also share stories from the life of her father and his art-loving friends. The event is free, but seating is limited and registration is required. To register, call the ticket center at 216-421-7350 or visit engage.clevelandart.org.

Victoria Price’s Learning to See: Postcards from the Road showcases photographs from her journeys from 2011 to 2017. Although she has served in many roles in the art world (historian, consultant, dealer and gallery owner), an early childhood message about being “not good enough” had stopped her from previously exploring her own artistic efforts. Learning to See is her first individual art exhibition.

“Over the past s even years, as I have reclaimed my authentic life, I have also reclaimed both my voice as a writer and my eye as an artist,” says Price. “In this show, I am showing photographs ‘marked’ by words, which are my postcards sharing my journey back to the heart of creating art. Mine is a love affair with that inspiring liminal space, where verbal and visual intersect to tell a story that I believe is universal: the beauty of the whole wide world.”

Learning to See opens with a reception from 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 10, and remains on view through July 15. Price will be in the gallery for the reception, and the Burning River Roller Derby skaters will be bartending to raise funds for their league. Refreshments include a “Pink Tonic” in honor Victoria’s famous father. In conjunction with Learning to See, the gallery also hosts a Six Degrees of Vincent “side show” with Vincent Price-themed artwork. All works from Six Degrees of Vincent may be taken home immediately, and new works will be added throughout the exhibition.

Next week, Victoria Price will be a special guest speaker at another Vincent Price-themed dinner at Luxe in celebration of the re-publication of Mary and Vincent Price’s second cookbook, Come Into the Kitchen. Beginning with a reception at 6 p.m., the dinner takes place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 15. The four-course dinner from Chef Dallas Martinez and his culinary team includes a wine pairing with each course.

Luxe will be closed to the public for this ticketed event. Tickets are $95 (plus Eventbrite fees), and seating is shared. For an additional $30, guests will receive a copy of the Come Into the Kitchen cookbook for Victoria to sign. Check out complete details and the full menu here.
