Upcoming Speakers:

Please note that all in-person lectures start at 2:30 pm.

Interested in what inspires local and regional artists? Interested in whether that came from fellow artists, a ‘Eureka’ moment, or the guidance of a mentor? Or would you like to hear about insights into their artistic process, their career trajectories, or their struggles with their identity as a person or as an artist?

Well, the Kingsley Art Club has been satisfying that curiosity for many years through the speakers they have brought to the Crocker to share their stories! The Speakers Series has been tremendously popular throughout all that time.. ..and continued the tradition during the Covid19 shutdown by featuring artists via videotaped and edited studio visits.

You will find an exciting mix of fare in our Fall Speakers series, as we offer you live talks in the Crocker Auditorium from curators, gallerists and artists. You will also be able to see the recorded video coverage of these lectures when we post them to our YouTube channel after the event.

Here is the 2022 Fall line up:
