Art Talks

Gallery Genesis presents an online space for art lovers to meet with artists who persevere in working, exploring, and gathering inspiration for their crafts. Though seeing works in the flesh has been temporarily relocated to a digital screen, Gallery Genesis continues to build bridges and draw connections amongst the art community and its patrons. Genesis Art Talks presents an intimate and personal way of connecting with both seasoned and emerging artists who are both embarking on the journeys of addressing these transformative times, and their stories along the way. At the end of the day, there’s always a way to make time for a profound conversation about art, life, and everything in between.
