A collection from the events we have on currently
Quest Art is pleased to share with you these opportunities to learn more about our exhibitions, programmes and a chance to get creative – all from the comfort of your own home!
Education Series – Elements of Art & Principles of Design
We are very excited to present this new education series. The aim of this series is to make art more accessible to those interested in exploring their artistic abilities. Every other Monday we will be releasing a new PDF with a brief lesson and activities to complete to familiarize yourself with the concepts. These lessons were designed with the understanding that access to materials may be limited and as a result any materials or medium could be used.
To begin we will be covering the elements of art & principles of design. After this we will prepare and provide lessons on different mediums and techniques. If there is a particular medium or style of art you’d like to learn more about please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
THE NIGHT’S BREATH RESPONDS TO THE SEA ARTIST CONVERSATION
Quest’s Executive Director Virginia Eichhorn is joined by Alondra Ruiz-Hernandez and Kasia Latos for an artist conversation about the exhibition “The Night’s Breath Responds to the Sea.”
Inspired by the surrealist French poet, Joe Bousquet, the works in this exhibition deal metaphorically with ideas around loss, of looking to the past, and of using personal experiences as a means of connecting to the universal through symbolic and archetypal imagery

NOT EVEN THE POET’S ARTIST’S CONVERSATION
Quest’s Executive Director Virginia Eichhorn is joined by Michelle Karch-Akerman, Jeanette Luchese and Tina Poplawski for an artist conversation about the exhibition “Not Even The Poets.”
The title comes from Zelda Fitzgerald’s quote “No one can measure, not even the poets, how much the heart can hold.” This exhibition deals with love, loss, memory, commemoration & healing.
The artists in this exhibition have encountered experiences as caregivers for loved ones, with the work being created in response to those experiences including the challenges and the moments of grace and love that transcend illnesses.
