Description

Gallery opens at 5:00pm, Talk begins at 6:30pm

Please join us at The Foster for this special event with artist Tony Foster! He will be kicking off our upcoming lecture series, "My Journey with Tony" by giving a talk at The Foster during his visit from the United Kingdom.

Born in Lincolnshire, England, artist-explorer Tony Foster finds inspiration in the wild places of the world, which he paints en plein air. Since 1982, he has undertaken a variety of watercolor “journeys”—painting projects based on a philosophical or environmental theme—that often involve multiple expeditions over many years. His subjects range from mountains, rivers, rainforests, deserts, coral reefs and Arctic icebergs to such iconic natural areas as the Grand Canyon and Mount Everest.

Hiking, rafting, kayaking or canoeing to find the perfect painting site, then camping outdoors for weeks at a time to make his paintings, Foster frequently faces challenging weather and difficult conditions. His paintings, complete with diary excerpts and “souvenirs,” document his experiences in wilderness and his commitment to its preservation.

This free event will include a light dinner and refreshments.
