Fridays @ 5: Two Lives Devoted to Art

January 18 : 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm


Event Navigation

In this presentation, photographer Linda Brooks will show images of her life’s work and share reflections on art, education, and activism. Art curator Dan Cameron will talk about his vision of bringing visual and performing arts together, as he did in a multi-arts biennial in Kansas City in 2018.

Both Dan and Linda are working on books during their residence at the Hermitage. Dan will be working on his book, Belief in Art, and Linda is currently working on Proximities, which is about her life as a photographer, teacher and community arts advocate. Both speakers welcome dialogue with the audience after their presentations.

The event is in the Palm House on the grounds of the Hermitage Artist Retreat, 6630 Manasota Key Road, Englewood, FL 34223. Attendees are invited to stay and enjoy the beach afterwards.

Reservations for this free series are required and can be requested at www.HermitageArtistRetreat.org.

Award-winning creators of all artistic disciplines are invited to live and work at the Hermitage Artist Retreat. During their residencies, they share their talents with the community. Fridays @ 5 is the latest iteration of this outreach. This free series encompasses artist talks and readings, glimpses of the creation of works-in-progress, and live performances of music, theater, poetry and more.
