Is It a Woman’s Point of View? – VIRTUAL

Friday, April 30, 2021
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Free for Museum Members; $10 suggested donation for non-members

Join Megan Pyle, touring docent, for an interactive conversation about three artworks in our Collection and special exhibition Meeting the Moon. 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 this artwork? What do you see that makes you say that?
  • What is the mood of this artwork? What makes you say that?
  • What message do you think the artist is trying to convey? Why?
  • Is there anything about the artwork that you would associate with a woman’s point of view? What?

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. For more information or to add your name to our Slow Art Fridays mailing list, click here or call 828.253.3227 x122.
