In conjunction with Drawn to Excellence, Museum Members are invited to a series of special talks by Museum staff in conjunction with this rare exhibition.
An artist can use drawing as one part of the process of creating a work in another medium as well as completing a drawing as a finished work of art in its own right. Drawings can also be created as independent works of art with no other use in mind except the artist's and viewer's enjoyment. They can show us the artist thinking and working through problems right before our eyes.
On February 7, join Andrew Weislogel, curator of European art before 1800, on a journey from preparation to presentation as he explores the many functions of old master drawings.
This event is free to Johnson Museum Members, but space is limited. Call 607-255-6464 to RSVP by February 4.
This series has been funded in part by a grant from the Robert Lehman Foundation.
