The Speaker Series 2020: “Light and Color in Art” with William Woodward

February 11 @ 8:00am - 5:00pm

Our understanding of color underwent a sea change in the mid-1600s when Isaac Newton’s work with prisms shattered light to reveal the visual color spectrum. Artist’s were fascinated by Newton’s experiments with light as the source of color and began to find ways to use contrasting and complimentary colors in their work. Tonight, artist William Woodward illuminates different techniques artists have drawn on to manipulate light and color, and how generations of artists have enlisted their unique properties to create masterpieces.

All talks begin at 6:00 pm and last approximately one hour, including time for questions and comments from the audience. Attendees will have a chance to socialize beforehand over drinks and light hors d’oeuvres, beginning at 5:30 pm.

Ticket prices: $25 for individual speakers, $80 for the entire series.
Seating is limited, and priority will go to series-ticket holders.
