Guests mingle at the home of Aperture trustee Willard Taylor and his wife, Virginia Davies

On Wednesday, June 13, Aperture Patrons, board members, and special guests gathered for the fifth annual Spring Patron Cocktail Party at the home of Aperture trustee Willard Taylor and his wife, Virginia Davies. As the sun set, guests enjoyed a cocktail reception on Taylor’s terrace overlooking the Hudson River. “All of this is in the cause of changing artists’ lives and exciting people about the narrative of photography,” Aperture executive director Chris Boot said during remarks. “In addition to sharing a passion for photography, photographers, and artists, we really enjoy the discourse and spending time together,” board chair Cathy Kaplan said of Aperture Patron events.
