Art Talk: Unfamiliar Landscapes; Big and Small; and Luminous Worlds

DEBORAH LOFT

Art History Professor, College of Marin

The theme of this lecture series is to look at the work of selected California artists, and then juxtapose their work with that of artists from other times in history who have thought about similar issues.

This presentation picks up on the themes of three recent exhibits at the O’Hanlon Center.  How does the “luminous” visionary landscape appear in the paintings of the late Marin artists Gage Taylor and Bill Martin, and how do its meanings change—or not—in the small-scale works on paper by Albrecht Dürer and the enormous exhibitions by contemporary artist, Anselm Kiefer?  The grand finale to our look at Kiefer will be Deborah Loft’s photographs of his 2007 exhibition, Sternenfall, which inaugurated the re-opening of the Grand Palais in Paris.

RSVP by Dec. 6.
