Hopewell Valley Arts Council ArtConnect Forum
April 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Calling all art enthusiasts, artists, and creatives: Let’s celebrate the creative spirit at the next virtual ArtConnect Forum on Tuesday, April 20 from 7 to 8pm with guest speakers Catherine Fulmer-Hogan and Barry Hantman. Hosted by the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, each Forum features speakers with big imaginations who share their work, inspiration, and creative process.
Fulmer-Hogan, a community and social justice advocate, will present “High Notes: Gospel Music as a Catalyst for Social Change” about the significance of gospel music in the church, how spiritual music tells the story of being Black in America, and share her experiences living in a large family chock-full of singers, musicians, and artists.
Hantman, an eclectic and versatile artist formally trained in ceramics and jewelry-making, is the “Member Spotlight” and will talk about his passion for collecting outsider art, what inspires his work, and his most recent favorite mediums: fused glass and multi-media assemblages.
Presentations will be followed by a live Q&A session.
