Capacity Crowd this Evening at Let's Talk Art

A capacity crowd of art aficionados filled the main hall at Patrick John Mills Gallery this evening for the fourth in the Let's Talk Art series that started two months ago.

This evening, Joa Keur explained his trajectory into the world of art and how he shifted from doing metal sculpture to working with multi-media, and how his spiritual and environmental-concern sides affect his work.

James Fletcher spoke about his foray into using porcelain slip to create a series he calls, Under the Covers, and spoke about how he made his first bronze sculpture which several people in the audience interpreted to be the tree of life with people scrambling over one another to get to the top.
