"Making art is a conversation that becomes the telling of stories. Sometimes these stories turn into histories."
Paris-based Artist and Professor of Fine Arts Stephen McClymont is presenting an exciting new lecture series, where participants can discover the merits of the great artists in history as seen through an artist's discerning eye.
The talks will be accompanied by visuals on art history, and will be enriched by anecdotal stories about artists and their lives that McClymont has accumulated over his 30 years of experience as an active participant in the world of art.
Join us for one or all of the following talks:
April 1 - The Language of Paint
April 8 - Vermeer and Optical Devices
April 15 - Gerhard Richter: The Master of the Blur
