Join us for Point of View Gallery talks every second Friday of the month at noon.
February's POV Gallery talk will be with Holly Scoggins. Scoggins will discuss our current exhibition, "American Impressionism: The Lure of the Artists’ Colony" from an artist's perspective, discussing the formal elements, painting techniques, and personal interpretation of works from this exhibition.
