Thursday 22 February, 8pm to 9pm
Throughout 2018 The Creative Well will continue to present artist talks free of charge and open to the public in The McKenna Gallery at Riverbank Arts Centre. Artist talks will be tailored to people who are new to contemporary art as well as those who have experience with contemporary art. It is always enjoyable and rewarding to listen to an artist talk about their artwork, the art process they engage with and their thinking about art. These talks are planned to last for an hour with time for discussion at the end.
