Women in Art – VIRTUAL

Friday, May 1, 2020
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Free; registration required

Join Lynne Goldman, touring docent, for an interactive conversation about three artworks in our Collection. 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 these artworks? What do you see that makes you say that?
  • Does the artist give us any clues about the time period shown in each artwork? What are they?
  • Do the artworks suggest any stories or narratives? What are they?

Slow Art Fridays

Each Friday at 12pm while the Museum is closed, 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. Space is limited; to register up to one week in advance, email Kristi McMillan, director of learning & engagement, or call 828.253.3227 x122. Generous support for this program is provided by Art Bridges.
