Creative Conversations 2013

Patience Brewster - Creative Conversations with Skaneateles Area Arts CouncilArtist and entrepreneur Patience Brewster was the first guest in a new series of Creative Conversations presented by the Skaneateles Area Arts Council (SKARTS).

The program, moderated by actress and CNY arts leader, Laura Austin, was held March 5, 2013, at The Loft at 42 Genesee St., Skaneateles.

The two discussed Brewster’s art and her business. She then took questions from the audience.

“SKARTS launched this new series to feature local artists and thought leaders in our community,” says Joe Strodel, Jr. the organization’s President Emeritus. “Each Creative Conversation will feature a thought-leader moderator conversing with an artist, musician, performer or writer. The audience will explore how artists create, live and draw inspiration.”

Artists and interviewers have included: children’s author and educator Bruce Coville (interviewed by Patience Brewster) and artistic directors of Skaneateles Festival, David Ying and Elinor Freer (interviewed by Holland Gregg).

The community looks forward to more of these unique and intimate gatherings in the future. Redhouse Founder Laura Austin is expected to be next – late fall 2015.
