At the Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds:
- Join us for “Art, Spirituality and The Power of Creativity,” a free discussion with Newton artists and authors about the spiritual tones that often guide their creativity. How do they combine personal expression with making a larger cultural statement in their work? What themes and values do they hope to communicate? Historic Newton partners with NewCity Church to host and moderate this inclusive conversation with Marian Dioguardi, Grey Held, Sandy Renna, and Clara Silverstein from 10:30 a.m. to noon.
- From 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. participants in the panel discussion (artist Marian Dioguardi, artist and author Grey Held, wood crafter Sandy Renna, and author Clara Silverstein) display and sell their work. Authors Cheryl Pappas, Helen Waters, and Mia Wenjen also sign and sell their books.
