Artist Talk with Laurie Lambrecht at Guild Hall

April 14 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Artist Talk with Laurie Lambrecht at Guild Hall

In conjunction with the exhibition, A Creative Retreat: Portraits of Artists, Guild Hall collection artist Laurie Lambrecht joins Director of Visual Arts Melanie Crader in conversation about Laurie’s career and her ongoing project included in the exhibition entitled Inspirations All.

In anticipation of the reopening of the John Drew Theater, the final stage of Guild Hall’s facility-wide renovation, A Creative Retreat: Portraits of Artists celebrates artists who were and are the fabric of the East End artist community and integral to Guild Hall.

The East End has a history of providing an environment for artists to gather and a place of respite and contemplation where many artists work quietly and diligently seasonally and year-round, forming a vibrant creative community. This exhibition of photographic portraits of visual, literary, and performing artists is drawn largely from Guild Hall’s permanent collection, supplemented by projects by Linda K. Alpern, Laurie Lambrecht, and Mark Mann.

Guild Hall was established in 1931 as a gathering place for the community where an appreciation for the arts would “promote a finer type of citizenship.” The institution was the first arts town hall of its kind, encompassing a museum, theater, education center, and meeting space under one roof. Guild Hall’s history parallels that of the American theater and art worlds, with many landmark performances and exhibitions documented in the publication Guild Hall for All (2021).

This exhibition is organized by director of visual arts Melanie Crader.
