GC Myers- Embraced I am giving a Gallery Talk at noon today, Thursday, August 1, at the West End Gallery in Corning.  The talk starts at noon and,  from past experience, usually lasts until around 1 PM , although I am normally on hand for another hour for those who have follow up questions or comments and want a less public response or just aren’t comfortable speaking in front of a group.

I try to keep the atmosphere light in these talks so that those on hand feel comfortable to begin a two-sided conversation  because it’s this back-and-forth  that ultimately determines how well the talk goes.  That and honest, direct answers that give real information that is not clouded in artspeak.  With a lively conversation with real information,  the best talks go by in a flash and everyone leaves feeling good about how they have spent their time.  That’s always my primary goal for these events.

We are also having an added attraction for this year’s talk at the West End:  I will giving away an original painting of mine to one lucky winner drawn from those  in attendance today.  So, if you’re in the Corning area today at noon, please stop in and you may go home with a piece of my work.

Hope to see you there!

[Note: the painting shown here, Embraced,  is part of the current exhibit and is not the prize for today’s drawing!]
