ARTIST TALK | CREATIVE MEAN
Lucas Foglia, Erica Deeman, and George McCalman
Presented by Creative Mean and SF Camerawork
Thursday, April 20, 2017
6 - 8 PM

We are thrilled to be hosting an evening of artist talks featuring presenters Lucas Foglia, Erica Deeman, and George McCalman. This lecture series is produced by Creative Mean, which brings together professionals from different mediums and industries for bi-monthly talks at rotating venues around the Bay Area.  Creative Mean creates a space for speakers and attendees to both challenge and clarify notions around their own creative practices by connecting talented people from different backgrounds.

Lucas Foglia is a photographer who builds stories rooted in rural America. His work feels simultaneously allegorical and uniquely specific. The second speaker, illustrator and art director George McCalman, runs a thriving design studio centered around an enduring sense of community and collaboration.  And the final speaker, Erica Deeman, whose large format portrait project tackles issues of race, identity, and gender, will sit for a conversation with Creative Mean host Jeff Enlow.
