FREE Coffee and Conversation with Susan Maxon 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, February 12th at 12 noon,the series hosts artist Susan Maxon. Susan, an award-winning jewelry maker, will give a demonstration of a basic metal etching process that can be done at home using easily attainable materials. Audience members will have the opportunity to try their hand at etching a piece of copper to take home with them if they are interested.
Susan began her career of silversmith at the elbow of reknown jeweler Gran Miner who taught that art to the young men of the Navajo Tribe in Phoenix, Arizona. She went on to earn her BA.Ed., MEd, PhD (ABD) in Art, in Education, and in Psychotherapy from Southeastern Oklahoma State College and the University of North Texas. She served as the Chair of the Art Department at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Upon moving to Florida over 20 years ago, she became a member of the faculty at Dunedin Fine Art Center where she teaches silversmithing classes. She is an active artist, owning and operating Honors Gran Jewelry and exhibiting both locally and nationally.
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!
