7:00 PM: Lifelong Learning Opportunity
This evening we are pleased to welcome Brett Harper as he presents “Nature seen through the eyes of artist Charley Harper.” “I count the wings not the feathers,” was the credo of the late modernist Charley Harper (1922-2007). Brett Harper, the son of Charley and Edie Harper and director of the Harper studio, will present an illustrated lecture about his father’s 60-year career. The evening is recommended for anyone who would like to know more about Charley, nature art and how art is created.
