VIRTUAL GALLERY TALK: Solitary: Isolation and Creativity

August 11, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

$8.00 – $10.00

with Amy Kurtz Lansing, Curator

$10 (members $8)

Art has often been said to germinate from loneliness and the focus solitude can beget. Join Kurtz Lansing to explore selected works that take on solitude as a theme and/or mode of expression. Discussing artists like Willard Metcalf, Martin Lewis, and Peter Halley, Kurtz Lansing will offer ways to view their works as a means of processing our quarantine experiences during the pandemic.

This program takes place virtually via GoTo Webinar. You will receive a confirmation email of your registration. The link to the virtual program will be sent via email closer to the event date.
