Virtual ArtBites: On Curating Esther
Mar 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
We think of ArtBites as an intense little appetizer: the perfect bite-sized pop of inspiration to invigorate your senses and leave you wanting more. It all starts with a group of experienced panelists who bring nuanced perspectives and unique insights into the topic at hand. Their memorable stories and sharp observations will form the backbone of our discussion, but we love to hear from you, as well! One of our favorite things about ArtBites is the smart, thoughtful audience this program attracts, and there will be opportunities for small-group discussion as well as time for panelists to respond to audience questions. Whether you’re a lifelong art-lover or just beginning to explore your imagination, ArtBites is a delicious pop of creative inspiration you won’t want to miss.
Our current exhibition, Creating a Scene: The Legacy and Vision of Esther Webster, provides a look into the life of our founder. It traces the arc of Esther Webster’s development as an artist and community leader and explores the ongoing significance of her vision today. Paintings, drawings, and prints from a fiercely independent artist chronicle the course of a life that took her from the heady world of 1920s NYC to the wild north coast of the Olympic Peninsula. For this ArtBites event, join us for a behind-the-scenes conversation via Zoom with exhibition curators Sarah Jane, Gallery and Program Director for the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center and Amy McIntyre, the Executive Director of the North Olympic History Center.
