ART TALKS: Exhibition Tour and Discussion for Artists
A partnership between Perry County Council of the Arts and Susquehanna Art Museum
Perry County Council of the Arts invites artists to join Susquehanna Art Museum Director of Exhibitions Lauren Nye for a tour of SAM’s newest exhibition, Deep Roots: Ornamentation and Identity. The tour will explore the work of the five female artists on view, with a special focus on the themes and symbolism used to convey concepts. A discussion will follow, exploring the importance of the use of series in contemporary art. We will consider the development of concepts for your work, how to best create a series, and how to effectively discuss/write about a body of work. This will be a guided conversation for artists, ideal for sharing and brainstorming. PCCA and Museum staff will facilitate with helpful tips and suggestions but allow the group to direct the discussion.
This event is free with standard Museum admission, but RSVP is required. Perry County Council of the Arts members receive a special discount!
