Please add this event to your calendar immediately using the links in the registration confirmation email or keep the Zoom link somewhere safe such as in a note taking app. Meeting links will be resent the night before and an hour before the Artist Talk.


Please login 5-10 minutes early, as arriving late may disrupt the meeting. This event is created with a waiting room to check in guests once the host is ready to start. The name you registered with will appear as your reservation when you enter the waiting room. This link is unique to you, so please do not share your Zoom link with anyone. We will be admitting only one device per reservation, so sharing your Zoom link may result in missing the lecture.


Guests will be muted for the entire presentation. If you have a question in the middle of the lecture, you may ask in the chat. Questions are moderated and asked selectively as to not slow down the presentation. If your question has not been answered, there will be time at the end to ask questions. You may use the “raise hand” feature and a monitor will unmute you briefly to ask your question.


Sharing devices to watch the Artist Talk is allowed and we will be asking all device sharers to identify themselves.


Occasionally while using Zoom for events and classes, meeting participants will get dropped from the meeting. If this should happen, simply locate your meeting link, wait two minutes and click the meeting link to rejoin. A host will readmit you shortly.


All virtual events are recorded for Abington Art Center’s use to better optimize our programming. Class and Event recordings may also be uploaded publicly by Abington Art Center to Youtube or other video platforms. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded.
