Event Details

Painting: The Rosetta Stone, an informal slide presentation/lecture about painting on Friday, October 8 at 6:30pm. Reception from 6pm-6:30pm.

The goal of this presentation is to reexamine a number of paintings' timeless qualities, qualities that can be easily overlooked in an art world where multi/inter disciplinary amalgams are becoming the norm for what constitutes serious art.

That said, the art world is big enough to engage all forms of art making and content. It is ironic then that the most engaging art experience, through either making or collecting, is painting. My desire in this interactive presentation is to discuss some of the reasons for this.
- John McNamara
