Mini-courses for Museum Members, each held on consecutive Tuesdays.
February 28, and March 7, 14 / 1-3 PM
The history of abstract painting is a fascinating one, revealing remarkable artists and repeated challenges to the status quo. From pioneers like Kandinsky, O’Keeffe, and the Delaunays to mid-century expressionists who continued to overthrow conventions, abstract painting reveals the richness and diversity of twentieth-century experience.
Join Adelia Gregory, Associate Curator of Education, and Glenn Tomlinson, William Randolph Hearst Curator of Education, to explore historical works as well as installations by contemporary abstract artists on view at the Norton Museum of Art. The class includes lively gallery discussions and contextual power-point presentations.
Artists: At Their Word
April 25, May 2 and 9 / 1-3 PM
While some artists are famously mute on the subject of their art, many have been articulate spokespeople for their works through private correspondence and published writings. Hosted in conjunction with Pen to Paper, a special exhibition from the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art, this mini-course will examine writings by American artists such as Arthur Dove, Robert Motherwell and Grace Hartigan, and the relationships between the artists’ writings and art. Glenn Tomlinson, William Randolph Hearst Curator of Education, and Adelia Gregory, Associate Curator of Education, explore this topic through readings and gallery discussions.
