Humanities in the Harbor: "The Way of the Artist" by Iris Graville

Humanities in the Harbor will continue in July with a unique presentation by Iris Graville, author of Hands at Work

What is the way of the artist? Whether the art is writing, music, photography, painting, healing, baking or some other creative expression, seven characteristics describe Iris' own experience as well as what she's learned from the people in Hands at Work: commitment, exploration, joy, fear, connection, faith, and lack of control. She will talk a bit about each of these characteristics with stories from her own journey as well as images and excerpts from Hands at Work.

Prior to Iris' presentation, guests are invited to attend the Hands at Work Exhibit Reception and Viewing at 5:00 p.m.
