Next Lecture at Atelier Hall...

 
Color and Clarity:
19th Century Naturalism
 
Thursday, March 28th, 2019
by Alexander Soukas
7:00-8:30 pm at Atelier Hall

 

This lecture will be on the evolution of visual perception from the 19th century french academies, to the naturalists schools that followed, and the repercussions of its flirtations with the prismatic palette and the advent of impressionism. Integral and forgotten figures such as Lepage, Bouveret, and Meunier will be covered. This will lead us to the phenomenon of the american colorist lineage and contemporary figures such as Hawthorne, Hensche, and Shanks. Scholarship, rather than history will be the backdrop to this discussion on the language of painting, and an artistic interpretation of these ideas as an evolution in visual perception and metaphysics rather than mere art history. 

 

This event is open to the public. There is a requested $10.00 donation. Light Refreshments will be served.
