John Muir Laws and Artist-Explorer Tony Foster will discuss Foster’s Lockdown Diary, an artwork Journey created during COVID-19 lockdowns this Spring. Confined to home except for one walk each day, Tony constructed this daily diary of painted and written observations using the notes and drawings made during his regular outings. The resulting artwork beautifully illustrates Tony Foster’s pandemic stay-at-home experience in his own backyard of Tywardreath, Cornwall, England. This pre-recorded session will be moderated by The Foster’s Artistic Director, Kristin Poole.
