When is a design studio an art gallery? At the "After—Hours" opening reception in the studio one evening last week, art and art lovers took over C&G Partners as friends, family, and designers mingled over prosecco, charcuterie, and beats by DJ Keith Madden. Whether it was animations and films in the conference room, watercolors hung on the closet doors, or immersive installations in the restrooms, all the art was created by C&G staff after hours, reflecting the multidisciplinary professionals that have made C&G their home. And did we mention the prosecco?
