Join the Allegany Arts Council as we connect our February exhibiting artist, Hannah K. Freeman, with our annual Photography Workshops in an exciting and thought-provoking discussion, Working in Harmony: Exploring Visual & Thematic Connections.

About the Discussion

West Virginia University Painting Professor, Hannah K. Freeman and Frostburg State University Photography Professor, Robert Hein, will discuss the visual and thematic connections between Freeman's current exhibit and the work of contemporary photographers. The talk will focus on finding meaningful and relatable points between the two mediums, and to explore how the two can interconnect in the creation of new work.
