How to Look at Art with the Eyes of an Artist

Arthur Schopenhauer said:  Treat a work of art like a prince: let it speak to you first.

Georgia O’Keeffe wrote:  Nobody sees a flower, really – it is so small – we haven’t time, and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.

In this richly illustrated presentation Ms. Evans will talk about how to get a work of art to speak to you and how to make friends with the art you see.

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly: Women in Art

Over the centuries, men making art have portrayed women for the delectation of male patrons. Artists tended to show women either as goddesses or evil temptresses.  This  illustrated presentation looks at how the male gaze has rendered the female and explores the changes when women have the chance to become artists and speak for themselves.
