"Through the Eyes of the Artist" art lecture series continues at Gallery One!

Last Saturday Felicia Zavarella Stadelman returned to Gallery One and her “groupies” to deliver the latest installment of her popular art lecture series. Pablo Picasso was the subject this time. Picasso's enormous output kept his name before the public, even though his work seemed to be far from the mainstream. His powers of invention and execution spanned more than 80 years.

Normally, Felicia chooses another artist to compare and contrast with the subject of the lecture. But Picasso had no such comparison. He is unique among artists. Attendees were entranced with the details of the life of this 20th century icon! Someone commented, “I didn’t know he was such a randy guy!”

Felicia will be back one Saturday every month through November with more drama, dish & dirt on the following artists:
Paul Gauguin

August 18 -- Paul Gauguin -- He created a profound sense of mystery in his work. It is often said that he painted and dreamed at the same time.

Jack Vettriano

September 19 -- Jack Vettriano -- His prints sell more than those by old masters such as Monet and Van Gogh and yet none of his pictures can be found in any of the country's national galleries, and he has been snubbed by the arts establishment.

Suzanne Valadon

October 27 -- Suzanne Valadon -- Transformed herself from an artist's model into a successful artist.


November 17 -- Michelangelo -- Who said “Carving is easy, you just go down to the skin and stop.”

All lectures begin promptly at 10:30 a.m., but complimentary coffee and donuts are served at 10! If you’d like to receive email notices about this lecture series, subscribe to her email list here. We hope to see you later this month or in the coming months as this fascinating lecture series continues.
