A rare opportunity to hear artists Shirley Cass and Bill Meyer discuss their concurrent exhibitions with Harry Nankin, acclaimed photographic artist and author of two award winning books.

Shirley Cass’s exhibition “Marking the Stranger” alludes to lost souls. Dress and adornment are metaphors to illuminate the deadly politics of oppression.

Bill Meyer’s charcoal drawings and music compositions deal with themes of forests as sanctuaries and places for spiritual growth. Family histories and the sense of special place interacting with aspects of transience, exile and Holocaust.

Admission $12 Concession $10
