MIDDLETOWN, Calif. — Join artists exhibiting in the current show at Middletown Art Center for “Apart and Connected, Conversations with Artists” on Saturday, May 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. on Zoom.

Hear from the artists about their work in the stunning Apart and Connected exhibit. It’s on view until June 20. There will be time for public participation and questions and answers.

Conversations will be facilitated by Curatorial Team members Nicola Chipps, a former Art and Design Consultant at ​Ærena​ Galleries in the Napa Valley, and Lisa Kaplan, Artist, Art Educator and current Executive Director at MAC.

"We are thrilled to offer the public an additional in depth view of the Apart and Connected exhibit through intimate conversations with exhibiting artists” said Chipps. “We’ll speak to longtime MAC artists as well as several artists new to MAC. The talk will include a virtual tour of the gallery and views of work as stills. We’ll speak with each artist for about 5 minutes, and have time for conversation between the artists and the public.”

Lake County Poet Laureate 2020-2022 Georgina Marie will be reading from prose written in response to the exhibit from her April Writers Workshop Ekphrasis. ​"The Apart and Connected exhibit is a moving, visceral collection of vibrant art from all sorts of mediums including paint, raw earth, epoxy, and botanical inks. The works express the isolation, distance, pain, and perseverance of the human spirit both during the time of the pandemic and through other experiences. They demonstrate the excellence that can come from a time of intensity and quietude.”

To join the virtual reception visit where you will find a link to register for the Zoom event which is free to the public.

The MAC Gallery is open Thursday through Monday, 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., or by appointment by calling 707-809-8118. Social distancing and masking are always observed.
