Evening Art Talk by Ed Labadie
7 to 8 pm
Journey through time with a slide show and discussion illuminating the art of portraiture, from our earliest civilizations, through the renaissance, to modern masters. Celebration of talented artists and their dedication to this timeless art genre is the focus, as well as the influences of religion, political persuasion, vanity, and pre-photographic depictions of reality.
Labadie will also be presenting a portrait drawing and painting workshop soon thereafter, June 18 and 19. Complete information and registration on this site under Classes.
