Panel Discussion

March 1, 2021

Donna Caselden and Heidi Zander will participate in a Zoom panel discussion as part of the OUTSIDE @ MANSHIP ARTISTS SALON 2021 SERIES. The program, titled “I KNOW WHAT I LIKE!“, will be live on Zoom Thursday, April 22, from 7-8pm. Registration and sign-up in advance are required. Zoom space is limited, reserve your spot here: https://forms.gle/GmUtGC348cFdTyZ69

From the Manship website: “Artists give us an opportunity to see things differently, in ways that are engaging, unexpected and perplexing. Our view of the world can be turned upside down and inside out by looking at artwork of a place that we may recognize, but which is rendered in such a way as to invite us to look again. Join three Outside @ Manship artists as they talk about the way they see the world. With Heidi Caswell Zander, Andrew Fish and Donna Caselden.”
