Visual Artist Claire Pentecost Master Artist Outreach 

May 24 

Attend the Visual Artist Claire Pentecost Master Outreach on May 24 at The Gallery at Avalon Island. Claire Pentecost is an artist and writer whose poetic and inductive drawings, sculpture, and installations test and celebrate the conditions that bound and define life itself. Her projects often address the contested line between the natural and the artificial, focusing for many years on food, agriculture, bio-engineering, and anthropogenic changes in the indivisible living entity that animates our planet. 

Following the Illustrated talk there will be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions. The event is free to the public. For more information, call 407.317.8367.
