Program Type:Art & Architecture, Featured
Gardens, trees, and flowers can represent the beginning of life, symbolize love and passion, and perhaps most fundamentally, relay a space of comfort and hope. With a focus on Impressionism, ArtScapades looks at how gardens and flowers played an important role in the works of artists throughout history.
This lecture will touch on works by Hieronymus Bosch, Gustav Klimt, Wassily Kandinsky, and Henri Rousseau, and will then look more closely at how flowers and gardens were captured in the works of Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Mary Cassatt, and Vincent van Gogh.
This event corresponds with ARTicipation:Textured Landscapes on April 20th. The workshop will explore using natural materials to create an assemblage landscape painting. Personal expression of all levels will be encouraged to create a work of art that could be either abstract or realistic based on our topic Gardenscapes.
