Arts & Letters
Online Conversations About Art, Words & Ideas
One Friday every month
5:00–6:00 pm Pacific
Series host Ginna BB Gordon and her guests are here to enlighten, entertain, inform and amuse you. Arts & Letters one-hour online conversations spotlight authors and artists who share their talents, their passions, and their sense of accomplishment. Often, local authors launch their newly-published books with an Arts & Letters conversation.
Needless to say, this is a distinct honor for us. Moreover, it is a great way for authors to spread the word about their work so that their new audience can look for their books on the Author’s Corner shelves at Art Presence. We hope to bring to our viewers a sense of the joy of creation, be it word, image, or deed.
We livestream these fascinating conversations with Ginna and her guests on Zoom. Then we post the events on the Art Presence Art Center YouTube Channel so they are available for you to view anytime. You can also watch them in the video gallery below. Furthermore, this is a great way to get to know the authors we represent in the gallery. Some are first-time authors and others have published their writing for decades. Regardless, the opportunity to learn about a given author’s background and intent from a personal conversation is a rare one. Be sure to register for the next one so you can watch live and ask your own questions!
From time to time, we produce a special edition. One of these is our April 2022 episode with Anne Brooke. In this episode of Arts & Letters, Ginna and Anne talk about the beginnings of Art Presence and how we progressed to where we are today. It’s fast becoming the most-watched video on our YouTube channel. Don’t miss it!
