Modernism: A Continuation of a Debate on the Nature of Art

What-Is-ArtIn April, the Southern Shore Art Association provided four respected artists a public opportunity to debate the very broad topic of art and what sets it apart. Who could hope for a consensus on that issue? But the debate was enlightening. Seeking to explore to more extensive parameters, Southern Shore Art Association will again offer a panel of artists a forum to expand the debate.

Refreshments have been donated by Arturo’s Baked Goods & More, to be served at 2:00 pm, with the debate ensuing from 2:30 – 3:30 pm and audience interactions until 4:30 pm.
