Artist History Talks Resume at LCAG

Started last summer, Lake Country Art Gallery is resuming its successful speakers series.

  • Oct. 29, 2013 11:00 a.m.

This summer the Lake Country Art Gallery ran a series of four Art History Talks by former summer student Peter Green.

And now, as promised, we offer more Art History Talks.

They start on Sunday Nov. 3, when UBC Okanagan art history student and artist Hanss Lujan will present the first of three art history presentations in November and December.

All talks run on Sundays at 1 p.m. at the Lake Country Art Gallery. They are free and open to the public.

I. Behind the Lens: Understanding Photography, Sunday Nov. 3 at 1 p.m.

An overview of photography. Using Susan Sontag’s critical essay, On Photography, we will explore the roots of photography and its evolution throughout time. We will explore the history of photography, from analogue to digital. We will also look at the relationship between painting and photography to get a better understanding on how to appreciate fine art photography.

2. A Guide to Canadian Art, Sunday, Nov 24.

3. Artpop: Art History in Modern Contemporary Pop Culture, Dec 8.
