Hanging out, drinking delicious coffee, talking about art… ahhhh, that’s the life! Well, that IS the life at least for an hour or so each month at the Dunedin Fine Art Center’s Coffee and Conversation series. Enjoy coffee (Presented by the Sterling Society of DFAC) and insights as each month’s invited guest holds forth on their own area of expertise. Admission to these relaxed talks is $5 and is FREE to current DFAC members.

He will show images and discuss how his architecture is also strongly In/formed by his experiences of the sacred Architecture of the ancient Egyptians and Maya – the manner in which their designs respond to the land and to the movement of the sun.
Carl Abbott is one of the most highly awarded architects in the Florida/Caribbean Region – having also worked in Europe, the Caribbean, and the Pacific Islands. With a Master’s in Architecture from Yale , Carl is an original member of the recognized Sarasota School of Architecture.
