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.
Thursday, February 14th, 2019 at 12 noon, the series hosts artist and curator Catherine Bergmann. Catherine will share about her secret life as an artist and her 19-year adventure at DFAC–as weekend manager, education assistant, volunteer coordinator, adult education director and curator! This Valentine’s Day presentation is her Love Letter to the creative community she adores—entitled: Strange But True: Tales from the Heart. Rest assured, there will be: secrets revealed, an intriguing soundtrack, magic tricks and if she’s lucky–champagne + chocolate?
