All talks run on Sundays at 1 p.m. at the Lake Country Art Gallery. They are free and open to the public.

I. Behind the Lens: Understanding Photography, Sunday Nov. 3 at 1 p.m.

An overview of photography. Using Susan Sontag’s critical essay, On Photography, we will explore the roots of photography and its evolution throughout time.
