Discussion - Art is Love - Madame Cezanne. Wednesday, March 4th 12:30pm
Love has been the muse for artists for centuries. Art and Love have been intricately woven together for ages. Sometimes they are expressed in playful and joyful ways and other times it is more complicated. C. Parker Gallery explores this relationship with its current exhibition, "Art is Love". To accompany this, on March 4th at 12:30 pm, the gallery will be hosting Dr. Jessica Winston, who will further explore the dynamics of art and love focusing on the current exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art: Madame Cezanne.
This particular exhibition features 29 portraits created by Cezanne of Hortense Fouquet. She was his model, his wife and mother of his only son. This lecture will explore images both as objects of artistic explorations and as depictions of Hortense herself.
Dr. Jessica Winston has a Ph. D from Columbia University and is a former professor at Vassar College. This will be the first talk in the C. Parker Gallery "Exploring Art" series., which will be offered throughout the year and provide a glimpse into current exhibitions in the metropolitan area. They will also offer different opportunities for art lovers, collectors, art novices and sometimes young families to explore and connect with the art world.
Guest lecturer Dr. Jessica Winston is also the principal of ArtView, which provides customized museum and gallery tours. She will be offering attendees the opportunity to discuss with her arranging their own private guided tours of the Madame Cezanne exhibition or any of the area museums and galleries.
