Artist Talk: Anthony Romero & Çaca Yvaire
Hosted by New Art Center

Anthony Romero is a Boston-based artist, writer, and organizer committed to documenting and supporting artists and communities of color.

Recent projects and performances have been featured at The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts (Omaha), the Blue Star Contemporary (San Antonio), The Institute of Contemporary Art (Boston) and the Mountain Standard Time Performative Art Biennial (Calgary, Canada).

He is primarily invested in stimulating and uplifting an infrastructure that supports a rich and imaginative solidarity between lifeways, and honoring the varied traditions of relating sustainably to the world around us through non-industrial agroecology, agriculture, silviculture, aquaculture, etc. that have been historically side-lined by imperialist design.

Demo with Jason Skill | Turner's Watercolors

For those who love this artist’s work and have some experience with watercolor, this demo will offer a practical eye opening glimpse into the great master’s working methods.
