Artist in Residence Lecture: Lauren Eckert

Please note: This lecture will be held virtually using Zoom Webinar. Pre-registration is required.

In conjunction with the fall 2020 exhibition, From the Ground Up: Peters Valley School of Craft, we are offering three free virtual artist lectures featuring each of the resident artists who will be in our 1st floor galleries October through December. Each artist has a connection with Peters Valley School of Craft and will be sharing with the public how the organization has shaped their careers, as well as describe their artistic process and current and upcoming projects. This program is free to attend but pre-registration is required to receive the link.
