This new program series invites contemporary artists to respond to specific works on view in the galleries with a focus on form and process. Through guided observation, visitors hear from artists working across a diversity of media as they reflect on impactful works, and explore their own connections to—and interpretations of—the exhibiting artist's practice and methods.
This special gallery talk is presented on the occasion of Alma Thomas, an exhibition that examines the evolution of an artist who created a highly personal style that expanded upon traditional Abstract Expressionist and Washington Color School practices through experimentations with color, line and pattern.
Join us as Mike Cloud, Leslie Hewitt and Eric Mack discuss Thomas as a formalist, exploring works from every period in her dynamic career, including rarely exhibited sketches, watercolors and early abstractions, as well as her signature canvases.
This program will feature three, twenty-minute artist talks in the galleries, followed by a Q&A and public dialogue in the theatre. This program is free with Museum admission, which is a suggested donation of $7 for adults and $3 for students and seniors. To pre-register, please click here.
