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, we’ll talk about how to get a work of art to speak to you and how to make friends with the art you see.
Wendy Evans is an art historian who gives talks around the metro area and beyond to engaged and enthused audiences. “A wonderful class! Full of thoughtful comments bringing attention to details so easily missed------in short she brought painting, photo or whatever to life. Well organized, clearly spoken and amazingly ending exactly on the hour. Looking forward to Wendy Evans next class!”
