The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at Hodges University will host a free lecture on the Post-Impressionism period in art history. The lecture will be held at
the Barrington Terrace Learning Center, 5175 Tamiami Trail East, in Naples on Monday, October 10 from 1:00 pm to 3:00pm.
As a follow up to last week’s offering on impressionism, this session will focus on the period of art history that featured the works of such great artists as Paul Cezanne and Paul Gauguin. Post-Impressionists extended Impressionism while rejecting its limitations: they continued using vivid colors, thick application of paint, distinctive brush strokes, and real-life subject matter, but they were more inclined to emphasize geometric forms, to distort form for expressive effect, and to use unnatural or arbitrary color.
The lecture will be conducted by Carol Jonson. She has been an instructor with the CLL since 1996, and has served on the CLL Advisory Board since its inception. Ms. Jonson earned her BA and MA in English Literature from Wayne State University in Detroit, and did post-graduate work in Medieval and Renaissance English at the University of Detroit. In 1995, she retired from a career in health care communications and marketing. Ms. Jonson is currently a consultant and freelance writer.
