FREE Coffee and Conversation with Fran McLean at the Dunedin Fine Art Center.
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 FREE coffee (Presented by the Sterling Society of DFAC) and FREE insights as each month’s invited guest holds forth on their own area of expertise.
Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 12 noon, the series hosts artist Fran McLean. Fran looks forward to sharing a life and work as a painter that began with her first commission in her sixth grade classroom. Fran’s teacher was an astute judge of talent… a talent that Fran didn’t pursue until much later.
Fran McLean has had many professions, including her years as a tennis instructor. It was only after retiring from the court that she began to pursue her gift for painting. Though describing a career that many might refer to as “self-taught,” Fran acknowledges that through the years, it was the classes and workshops that she attended that allowed her to improve and refine her techniques and color theory.
An art instructor since 1995, Fran moved to Tampa Bay in 2009, where she is a member of the Professional Association of Visual Artists (PAVA), Progress Energy Gallery and the Dunedin Fine Art Center (DFAC), where she is also an instructor.
So stop by for some Coffee & Conversation (both of which are FREE) Or call ahead to the Palm Cafe’ (298.DFAC ext 237) and have lunch waiting for you!
