Welcome to May! It’s definitely spring here in Rochester, per the calendar, and according to the flowers….but winter is still trying to keep it’s icy hold with flurries, overnight freezes, and more dull gray skies. Despite all that, one bright spot is that more and more arts organizations, museums, educational institutions and galleries are getting creative with ways for us all to engage with the arts online!
For example, the Department of Photography and Digital Arts at the Flower City Arts Center has organized this series of upcoming virtual Artist Talks for the month of May:
- Sunday, May 10, 1:00 to 2:00 pm EST – Fernando Muller (current FCAC artist in residence; this one already happened, but when the Youtube link is available, I’ll update this post)
- Sunday, May 17, 1:00 to 2:00 pm EST – Linda Van Artsdalen (fiber and alternative photographic process artist – AMAZING work)
- Saturday, May 23, 1:00 to 2:00 pm EST – Jonathan Merritt (current FCAC alternative photographic process artist and teacher – and the person who taught me kallitypes!)
- Sunday, May 31, 1:00 to 2:00 pm EST – me! I’ll be talking about my kallitypes and showing current work.
These talks are free and open to the public, no matter if you are local here in Rochester or somewhere else in the world. You just need to register so you can receive the Zoom link to join in: https://www.rochesterarts.org/classes/artist_talks_online_spring_2020/
