May 11, 6 - 7:30pm
Panelists and audience members consider the implications of the broader art world on creating, collecting and experiencing art at the regional level. Is art made outside the region any more or less relevant to Rochester? Do artists & viewers with a regional point of view have something to contribute to the global marketplace of ideas? What should gallerists & collectors be thinking about work made in our region vs. across the nation and around the world?
Louis Perticone from Artisan Works will take a regional perspective while recently retired gallerist, Nan Miller, will speak from a national and international point of view. Bradley Butler, a practicing artist as well as the gallery director/curator at Main Street Arts in Clifton Springs, New York will present a differing perspective. All the panelists will talk about the impacts experienced right here in the Rochester-Finger Lakes Region. The audience is encouraged to participate in the discussion.
Starting at 6pm there will be a social mixer featuring craft cocktails (cash bar).
The program will begin at 6:30 pm and will run for approximately one hour.
Tickets are $2 at the door for non-members
No charge for Members of Rochester Art Collectors and Rochester Contemporary Art Center.
This event will take place at Rochester Contemporary during the exhibition Federico Solmi – The Good Samaritans exhibition which runs from April 6th through May 12th.
This program is produced by Rochester Contemporary Art Center and Rochester Art Collectors
