ART of Creativity and Survival during the Pandemic

Bethany Garner

The Tett presents resident artist for a ZOOM presentation on May 20, 2021

6:30-8 pm in Studio D, Tett Creativity Studios

Registration: https://art-of-creativity-tett-talk-with-bethany-garner.eventbrite.ca 

During the past year, the time I have been able to spend with my arts practice as a Resident Artist at the TETT Centre's CREATIVITY STUDIOS has been a quiet meditation on the situation we have all been exploring together during the Pandemic Days here in Canada and specifically in Kingston.

I am so pleased to be one of nine Resident Studio Artists who each practice their skills and create amazing new art in their studios at the TETT. Since joining the cohort in 2019, I have so enjoyed the opportunity to share my skills and artwork with students and visitors across the Kingston and Frontenac County area and beyond. While the time is available, we all are using our Studio space to create when time and the pandemic Health Regulations allow. The chance to be actively teaching in-person classes has been restricted for quite a long time. 

WE MISS YOU, our art friends, dancers, musicians and visitors!

This presentation allows me the chance to not only support the Kingston Arts Community through your registration and attendance at the TETT Centre's TETT TALK on May 20th, but to have the time for sharing an evening of my artwork, talk about what inspires me to continue exploring new skills and techniques and celebrate those who inspire me! It will be fun to enjoy an in-person chat with each of you attending and share how I have survived the quiet days and weeks during the pandemic's progression over the past 13 months.

I do hope that you will come along and enjoy time with our Community friends who love a Zoom talk... and the chance to have time for questions and share your thoughts about your artwork is important to me. We will have time at the end of my presentation to do just that!

Joining the presentation is easy: just click on the EVENTBRITE link at the top of the page and register through their tickets portal for your seat in our evening talk. The donations of your fee will go directly to the TETT Centre for the ongoing support of classroom events starting as soon as our KFL&A Public Health professionals are able to lift the restrictions for in-person classes at the TETT. 

We all look forward to those wonderful days with area friends and especially the youngsters to seek to come and visit and learn with us here at the TETT.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE THE LINK to register with friends near and far. Everyone welcome!

I look forward to having time with you and please feel free to share our link for the talk... the more who attend, the more chance for YOU to share in the evening of slides sharing, artwork viewing and learning about my inspiration with friends around the world as I work on projects during these quiet days.
