Artist Talk with John Truitt - Art on the Spectrum
5:30pm / The Lightbox at Stillwater Music
The Durango Creative District presents an artist talk with local artist John Truitt on Friday, June 28th. The artist talk will include wine, small bites, and a "touch tour" of the artwork, as John encourages viewers to interact with the highly textural nature of his abstract expressionist works.    Diagnosed with multiple neurodiversities at 45, Truitt channeled his experiences into founding the On the Spectrum Foundation and now speaks professionally on neurodiversity, specifically 2e (Twice Exceptional) gifted on the Autism Spectrum, while offering life coaching. His abstract paintings, described as "surfing the spectrum," reflect his dynamic journey and serve as a vital creative outlet.

Author Event & Book Signing with Laura Pritchett "Playing with Wildfire"
6:00pm / Maria's Bookshop
When a wildfire bears down on a mountain community, residents are forced to gather for safety--resulting in a tangle of love and lust that pulls people from their isolation, friendships that form across political divides, and a new hope for rethinking the ways humans inhabit the burning planet. Playing with Wildfire is a literary landscape that is an experiment in form: an astrology report; a grant application-turned-love-story; a phone call from Mother Earth; an obituary for a wildfire; a burned mountain's conversation with a lone woman and an injured bear. Every story captures how fire affects the human psyche and life, and how destruction can lead to renewal.
