The Weatherspoon’s ‘Conversations on Creativity’ will continue through end of July.

Join some of Greensboro’s inspiring creative couples to learn how they jumpstart their creative processes. Each program will provide a unique opportunity to explore the nature of inspiration in the lives of local practicing artists. The Weatherspoon will provide the snacks and drinks. You add to the conversation.

On July 23, Jack Stratton, a painter who has worked diligently for many years, and Sara Jane Mann, who only recently returned to artistic practice with the medium of photography share their perspectives on making art in the context of living a creative life. On July 30, join Carolyn de Berry and Harvey Robinson who will share aspects of their individual artistic practices and unique partnership, Monkeywhale Productions.

Conversations on Creativity series is inspired by artist Tom Burckhardt’s installation FULL STOP (2004-05). This popular, full-scale installation work is constructed entirely of cardboard, black paint, wood and hot glue. A highly detailed replica of a mythical artist’s studio, the work presents viewers with a cluttered interior space filled with art books, research material and all the tools of the classic post-war American oil painter.
