Lauren Rogers Museum of Art will present ArtTalk on Thursday, March 17 at noon in the Museum’s Lower Level Lecture Hall. Laurel artist Adam Trest will be the featured speaker.

A native of Laurel, Mississippi, Adam Trest is a graduate of Mississippi State University, where he received a bachelor of fine arts with an emphasis in painting. His work primarily being portraiture, Trest also addresses the idea of narrative happening within his work. Currently teaching art at St. John's Day School, as well as privately at Oak Street Place, he is an active member on the Board of Directors at the Laurel Little Theatre as Set Designer. Trest recently designed and built the sets for both LLT's To Kill a Mockingbird, and JCJC's production of Little Shop of Horrors. He also manages the Oak Street Place Gallery, and is currently illustrating a children's book written by Kathy Ellzey.

Art Talk, sponsored by West Quality Food Services, Inc., is free and open to the public. Guests are invited to use the North Garden Entrance and bring a sack lunch. Desserts and beverages will be provided.
