The South Shore Arts Art in Focus program meets twice monthly as part of an on-going series of free arts presentations that provide insights into the work of artists and the multitude of artistic forms that they express. These presentations are being hosted in a new virtual format that allows South Shore Arts to bring artists directly to the audience in the comfort of their own homes, gaining access to artistic experiences that might otherwise be out of reach.
This year, each session is taking place virtually, with live interaction between the presenter and audience. Each session is hosted by South Shore Arts Deputy Director Micah Bornstein. Thursday evening sessions at 7pm are live events with the opportunity to engage directly with the presenting artist. Each presentation is then rebroadcast on the South Shore Arts website the following Monday. Links to participate are posted on the website.
