Lecture Series: Artist Talk with Debra Howard

May 5 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


A free series to create conversation and encourage curiosity.

This month: Our sense of smell is a powerful communicator. How often has a scent or fragrance evoked a memory, a vision, a place in time? Why does that happen?
Did you know that there is a receptor behind our nasal cavity called an olfactory bulb, where the sensory input will start to interact with parts of the brain responsible for smell identification, memory, and emotion?
Where do exotic oils like Frankincense, Myrrh, Copaiba, Niaouli, Peru Balsam come from?
Enjoy an entertaining PowerPoint talk from artist and synesthete, Debra Howard as she reveals the fascinating world of fragrance while surrounded by over 25 “fragrance” paintings and the aromas that inspired them.
