Quit Your Job and Then We'll Talk Art

On the second Thursday of each month, from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm, the gallery hosts Let's Talk Art where two artists spend 20 minutes each talking about their art and then responding to questions from the audience.

In April, Adam F. Davidson and Shannon Lee Mannion spoke about their experience being artists, what lead to them becoming artists, what being artists means to them and what plans they hold for the future.

In talks such as these, and there's another one May 10/12, it is the question period where the
nitty-gritty gets talked about. Tough questions such as, "What compels you to keep creating when there's little or no recognition and the bills keep coming in?" and, "Do you ever wish you were doing something else?"

Comfortable chairs, proper lighting and light refreshments make for an enjoyable experience.

After the talk, people were welcome to explore both floors of the gallery and to stroll around the Sculpture Garden along the side of the building.
