CURRENTLY SPEAKING Art World 101 with Carrie Scott

July 27, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Stowe, Vermont – The Current is pleased to announce the next installment of CURRENTLY SPEAKING, a public series of talks exploring contemporary art topics. Join us on Thursday, July 27 at 5pm for Art World 101 with London-based curator Carrie Scott. This informative primer will clarify the contemporary art world, which can be confusing due to nuanced industry standards, obscure terms, and a lack of regulation. Art World 101 explores basic definitions of key players such as museums, dealers, and collectors, and discusses the varying roles of artists, art advisors, influencers, and publicists.

Carrie Scott is a London-based American/English art consultant, curator, art historian, writer, and TV host who has worked with major galleries, collectors, and artists around the world for over 16 years. In 2009, she launched Carrie Scott & Partners, an art consultancy, gallery, and curatorial endeavor that exists beyond traditional gallery walls to provide more direct support to artists and collectors. Scott has also authored numerous articles and essays on artists and interviewed them as a presenter on The Art Show. Last summer, Scott presented Harold Feinstein’s work to an enthusiastic audience at The Current and is excited to return to Stowe this summer.

The CURRENTLY SPEAKING series hosts experts in a range of contemporary art genres and media. The Current looks forward to welcoming community members in casual discourse with the speakers and meaningful interactions with the art they showcase.
All series events start at 5pm and are free to the public with a suggested donation of $10. No reservation is required, and the gallery will be open beforehand for viewing the current exhibition, A Place of Memory. Refreshments will be served.
