At the Smithsonian Museum, don’t miss a chance to hear art critic, poet, curator, and writer John Yau discuss 19th-century landscape painter Frederic Edwin Church and 20th-century abstractionist Thomas Nozkowski.
Frederic Church and Thomas Nozkowski both spent significant time in the Catskills, drawing inspiration from locales for their respective artworks. Yau’s discussion focuses on each artist’s vision of nature and how their respective conceptions of seeing, as embodied in their paintings, could provide lessons for us today.
When: Wednesday, October 12 at 6:30pm
Thomas Nozkowski is featured in the book Abstract Painting: Concepts and Techniques and particularly relevant to the chapter on Layering.
