The first lecture of 2012 is set for January 28, with Frederic Remington as the subject. Men 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.
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.
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!

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!
