Lipman Visiting Artist Series Reception
The 11th Visiting Artist Series was held at The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty in Green Hills.

A percentage of art sales benefited the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT) Association, which seeks a cure for a group of inherited disorders that affect the peripheral nerves, which are the nerves outside the brain and spinal cord.
There are 90 kinds of CMT and each is caused by a different kind of mutation, and more causes are being discovered every year.
