ART TALK with George Hemphill
Saturday, October 26, 10:00am
George Hemphill emerged from a career as a conceptual artist over 30 years ago to venture into art dealing. On the 20th anniversary of the gallery he founded, Hemphill shares his singular perspective. He will share tales of visionary artists, heroic collectors, and frustrated curators, accumulated, as he describes, "while traveling the weird and lovely world of art dealing".
Seating is limited and available on a first-come first-served basis.
