Art Lecture Series Update

Happy New Year and welcome to the second half of Gallery One's 2011-12 art lecture series!  Created by Felicia Zavarella Stadelman, the "Through the Eyes of the Artists" lecture series will let you experience art in an uncommon way, providing the drama, the dish and the dirt!  All lectures start promptly at 10:30 a.m. at Gallery One, 7003 Center Street, Mentor OH and feature complimentary coffee and donuts.
Frederick Remington

The first lecture of 2012 is set for January 28, with Frederic Remington as the subjectMen of authority said he painted for history and recorded the vanishing America.  Find out more about this fascinating western artist and sculptor from the entertaining and enlightening Felicia.

Alphonse Mucha

On February 25, Felicia will introduce us to Alphonse Mucha.  With unforgettable images of enchanting women, streaming hair, flowing fabrics, Mucha’s work epitomizes the Art Nouveau Movement. Yet his name is barely known. He felt that art should serve as language to the viewer.  He's definitely someone we need to get to know.

George Seurat

The subject for April 28 will be George Seurat.  Pointillism called “chromo-luminarism" by Seurat dramatically influenced the course of modern art.  You won't want to miss this one!

self portrait - Mary Cassatt

May 26 will close the season with Mary Cassatt.  She was single-handedly responsible for introducing the Impressionists to America.  Whether you think you know the name or not, come and learn more about her.

Felicia's lectures cover the full spectrum of art genres, giving us a mini-education in art history while entertaining us with all the juicy details of the artists' lives.  I can't think of a better way for anyone to spend part of a Saturday morning.  And don't forget the coffee and donuts!
