TAPPERS & TAPESTRIES is a pop-up art series focusing on providing visual artists who moonlight in the bar/restaurant industry a platform to showcase their work on an “off-night” of the week. Once a month FSC will host an opening on a Sunday evening presenting work of various stewards of sauce and sustenance.
July’s edition will feature the work of barman Patrick O’Grady from Simon’s Tavern and speakeasy bartender John Ross Wilson
