Welcome artist and designer, Keith Francis, to In-Focus Podcast Number 128. Keith is an educator, graphic designer, mixed media fine artist, and sculptor.

He earned a B.A. (1990) in Photography and Visual Communications at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts, and his M.F.A. (2018) in Fine Arts from Mass Art (Massachusetts College of Art and Design), Boston, Massachusetts.

Keith also studied Fine Art Photography at Maine Media Workshops & College, Rockport, Maine. His work examines contemporary, social, political, and environmental issues.

Keith talks with The Artist Index’s Co-Founder and Host, Ron Fortier, about his background and lots more. This episode was recorded with Zoom “post-pandemic” in 2022.

We all hope there will be an end in sight to the COVID-19 Pandemic so that we may return to our studio at the Spectrum Marketing Group in Howland Place in New Bedford. Until then, we will continue to podcast remotely, assisted by Zoom, to accommodate our guests’ schedules and to allow them to remain in the comfort of their homes.

The whole concept of The Artists Index and the journey we are on is still in the making and very organic. If you would like to be a guest or, have a suggestion, please let us know!
