|Event:||FS-16 What Were They Thinking?!|
|Time:||1:00 to 3:00|
|Presenter:||Tom Gworek, ALP Member|
|The birth of abstract art. Between 1865 and 1915 the visual arts went through the biggest revolution in Western History, to the delight of some and the chagrin of many. How and why did art go from depicting everyday objects, landscapes, people, animals and sacred scenes to completely abstract creations filled with color and line but no meaning to the viewer? The first session of this program will delve into how this occurred in the artist's own words as we try to understand "what they were thinking" when they went down this path. The second session will follow the path of these new conceptions as we see how they developed from their inception.|
