Art Talks and Tea

Wednesdays at 1pm

Whether you’re an informed connoisseur, an amateur collector, or an art lover, join us for fascinating and informative discussions with the Festival of Arts artists at our Wednesday Art Talks.

Artists will share their inspiration, history, and careers in art. Listening to the artists present their work is not only interesting and inspiring, but gives attendees a deeper understanding of painting, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics and other art on the grounds.
