Hanging out, drinking delicious coffee, talking about art… ahhhh, that’s the life! Well, that WAS the life at least for an hour or so each month at the Dunedin Fine Art Center’s Coffee and Conversation series, sponsored by DFAC’s Sterling Society.
Times change and so do our pleasures. So many of them have become virtual. That doesn’t need to lessen the joy in connecting with artists you may know or have always wanted to meet! You can still enjoy the insights as each month’s invited guest holds forth on their own area of expertise, as the recent virtual Coffee & Conversations have proved… You’ll just have to pour your own coffee!
Tuesday, January 12th, 2021 at 12 noon, the series starts the New Year out right, with artist Stephen Schatz . In his presentation, “My Journey (1963-2020) as an Artist,” Stephen will discuss his various artistic influences and the intentions of his art. The presentation will focus on why he paints from life and his personal techniques of spontaneity and chance in using the paint. Stephen will expand on the joys, fulfillment, and frustrations of exploring through paint or clay the inexplicable human condition.
Stephen Schatz grew up in rural Albany, Georgia and earned his Masters degree in painting from Florida State University in 1968. Later studies included lengthy stays in New York at the Arts Student League and various academies in Paris. In 1986, he accepted a teaching position at Albany State University, where he remained until his retirement in 2003. During his tenure in Georgia, he was the recipient of many awards including three Georgia Council for the Arts Individual Artist grants. He now lives and works in New Port Richey, Florida. He has exhibited in numerous group and one-man shows.
