The Art of Jazz:
How Collaboration and Movements in Art Inspired 20th Century Jazz
Thursday, March 14th, 2019
by Tom Manuel
7:00-8:30 pm at Atelier Hall
Jazz has always relied upon collaboration, spontaneous creativity, improvisation and drama. The characteristics of Jazz are, and have always been, greatly fueled by the cross pollination of arts mediums across the spectrum. Tom Manuel discusses and presents a variety of examples of Jazz throughout the decades that were greatly influenced by collaborations with figures within the art world. Join us to listen to, view, discuss and be inspired by the Art of Jazz.

This event is open to the public. There is a requested $10.00 donation. Light Refreshments will be served.




Art of the Actual:
19th Century Naturalism and the Evolution of Seeing
Thursday, March 28th, 2019
by Alexander Soukas
7:00-8:30 pm at Atelier Hall


This lecture will be on the evolution of visual perception from the 19th century french academies, to the naturalists schools that followed, and the repercussions of its flirtations with the prismatic palette and the advent of impressionism. Integral and forgotten figures such as Lepage, Bouveret, and Meunier will be covered. This will lead us to the phenomenon of the american colorist lineage and contemporary figures such as Hawthorne, Hensche, and Shanks. Scholarship, rather than history will be the backdrop to this discussion on the language of painting, and an artistic interpretation of these ideas as an evolution in visual perception and metaphysics rather than mere art history. 


This event is open to the public. There is a requested $10.00 donation. Light Refreshments will be served.
