This Sunday: Art Appreciation lecture

As part of its on-going art education series, the Westfield Art Association (WAA) will present an educational afternoon seminar with noted art historian Gene Wisniewski on this Sunday, March 20, 2016, from 1-4pm in the Westfield Town Hall Community Room, located at 425 East Broad Street in Westfield, NJ.

Mr. Wisniewski delivered part one of his lecture previous to WAA which focused on a review of 1,000 years of Western Art. This month Mr. Wisniewski offers Part Two which focuses on Art Appreciateion. In this popular 3-hour lecture, he will explain what to look for when you look at art. 

This lecture is taken from his larger seminar, the Six-Hour Art Major, which he calls “art school, condensed.”  “Being exposed to these mini-versions of basic art classes gives you a whole different take on art,” he says.

This presentation is free to WAA members, with a $10 suggested donation for non-members. New membership applications will be available at the door. All are welcome. Refreshments will be served.
