*FULL* Works by Women from the Collection – VIRTUAL
Today’s program is full. To add your name to our waiting list, email Kristi McMillan, director of learning & engagement, or call 828.253.3227 x122.
Join Doris Potash, master docent, for a conversation about three artworks in our Collection made by women, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment. Before the discussion, find a quiet space. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and let it out slowly. Now open your eyes, and engage with the artworks in the image gallery; click on the thumbnail for a larger image, and spend about 15 minutes looking slowly at each.
- What’s going on in each artwork? What details do you notice?
- If you were in those places, what sounds would you hear? What textures and temperatures would you feel?
- What memories and emotions do these artworks evoke?
- Each of these artworks was created by a woman. Is there anything about the works that you would associate with a uniquely female perspective?
Slow Art Fridays
Monthly on second Fridays at 12pm, docents lead virtual, in-depth conversations about a few artworks in our Collection or special exhibitions. The goal is simple: slow down, discover the joy of looking at art, and talk about the experience with others. Topics, artworks, and self-guided questions are posted on the Museum's website in advance for participants, or for those wishing to have a self-guided experience on their own.
