About This Event

Art is for Everyone with Rona Steingart

Our homes have "pictures" on the walls making everyone an art collector. How did you acquire your "art?" Perhaps you inherited it, and it has been part of the life of your family for generations. Perhaps an interior designer selected pieces that were just the right colors to enhance your decor. Have you purchased art on vacation trips, hung it proudly in your home enjoying the memories? Learn about world-famous art collectors Steven Spielberg and Leonard Lauder, son of Estee Lauder, who have enriched our lives by donating their priceless art collections to American museums. Save Tuesday afternoons in February for this unique art experience. We will learn and participate in workshops where we will see art being made today in university art studios. What makes art "good?" Naples has a rich and varied art community. We will visit the Naples Art Association, view a national, juried show and learn how and where to buy art on "your" budget in our community. Two lectures will broaden your understanding of "modern art." Register now. This group will be limited to 20 people.

Making Art Today – The Art Program at Florida Gulf Coast University
Tuesday, February 13, 1:00-2:30 p.m.
Anica Sturdivant, assistant curator and gallery coordinator for the FGCU Art Galleries will be our guide. We will visit the current show in the Wasmer Art Gallery, featuring a video and sound installation by environmental artist Wendy Wischer. Sturdivant will help us to understand the relationship between art forms and technology in the 21st century. We will also visit the Printmaking Studio guided by Andy Owen, associate professor of art. He will focus on printmaking created in traditional and non-traditional styles. Fine art printmaking methods, amazing equipment and seeing prints created in this studio will be a unique experience. In the Ceramics Studio, we will visit with students in the advanced class Ceramics Workshop, taught by Patricia Fay, art program coordinator and assistant director of the Bower School of Music & the Arts. Fay and her students will discuss the search for personal expression through this ancient art form and how using 21st century technology makes almost anything possible.
