Artist Talk with Tom Burckhardt

Please join us for an artist talk featuring Tom Burckhardt in conversation with fellow artist Kathy Butterly, who is also Burckhardt's partner. Together, the two will discuss Burckhardt's current exhibition Ulterior Motif. Butterly will offer a unique perspective on Burckhardt's latest body of work, enriching the conversation with her personal insights and observations. Both will share their experience of being married artists and how this unique relationship influences and informs their creative careers. We hope you will participate in this lively discussion.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
