Marblehead Arts Association presents Artist Talk with Mark Shasha on Thursday, July 13 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. A true Renaissance man, Shasha has many passions and one is to celebrate the Arts and Letters as part of his daily life. Shasha wants to rekindle and spread anew the joys, connections and insights, which all the arts bring to us. Come and enjoy a sprawling topic peppered with ancient drafting tricks from the Renaissance to music, poetry, education, literature, and of course Mark’s full-time endeavor, painting from life. This will be a truly multimedia and multi arts presentation!

The event is free and open to all. To reserve a spot, call 781-631-2608.
