When: Saturday, June 15th, 1pm - 3pm
Where: Lake Country Art Gallery
Details: Curator Katie Brennan, Paula Irving and Peter Green will discuss each artist in Traces & their listed influences. They will then extrapolate each artist's art historical parallels and counterparts including highlights of the masters' lives and oeuvres. Through each of the three artists we will follow an art historical thread. Portraits of the self have long since been a vehicle for therapy to face the most challening events of an artist's life. Through M.L. Hall's work, for example, we will examine this concept.
