On 3rd May ADFAS Shoalhaven present a special interest day with guest lecturer Bernard Allan, an independent art history tutor who specialises in the work of European women artists and American Art.
On Friday morning there will be two lectures – Americans Abroad: James McNeill Whistler and John Singer Sargent – two of the most successful American artists of the late 19th century. Whistler produced sophisticated etchings and oil paintings that bring Victorian London to life, whilst his Nocturnes evoke an atmosphere and mood; creating a new art form. Sargent executed figure studies and dazzling landscapes inspired by his many travels.
Women Artists: Their Challenges, Ambitions and Achievements examines how the earliest practising female artists were confined to convents and little is known of their lives. Even in the 20th century, the obstacles facing female artists were many and significant. This lecture focuses on women whose passion for painting enabled them to surmount hurdles of the male-dominated art world.
ADFAS Shoalhaven is a local community group, which offers a series of informative, illustrated and entertaining lectures covering a broad range of subjects relating to the arts.
The speakers are world class, experts in their field and entertaining.
Members $35.00, visitors $40.00 at the door
