There will be demos and workshops from top artists, including Philip Burke, Margaret Martin, Margaret Roseman, John Salminen, Nicholas Simmons, Mel Stabin, and Mary Whyte. 

You'll have the chance to have round-table discussions with the panel of artists, explore the archives of the Burchfield Penney, which has the most extensive collection of Charles E. Burchfield's work in the world.
