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.

Musée de Louvre, Paris
Last year the Louvre had 9.6 million visitors, making it the most visited museum in the world. Happily we can Zoom to see its art up close without fighting the crowds. Many of the world’s most famous paintings and sculptures are here.

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.
