Artist Lecture with KEN KEWLEY- Stills and Animations

KEN KEWLEY
Born 1953, Battle Creek, MI

I tend to like paintings where the abstraction is strong. By this I mean that the paint, the colors and shapes, are distinct, like strong actors in a play. Going towards abstraction does not mean going away from representation. It is more like describing something real my other means than illustration.


Trust your instincts. I try not to worry about what I do not know, what I have been unable to teach myself. My inabilities serve me better than my abilities. That art is not something that is learned and then practiced, it is a form of communication and one is always trying to say something clearer. To love and to be honest, maybe one does not exist without the other and a desire to communicate that, this is what it takes to make art. --Ken Kewley (quoted in Studio Matters)

Lecture, November 2nd at 6:30pm Artist and Teacher; Ken Kewley will give a presentation of his "Stills and Animations".

Love and Art: The Wages of Commitment-talk Daniel Bullen

Artists are famously rewarding but also difficult lovers.  When two first-rank artists pair up, the complex interplay of creativities can lead to great works of art—and the competition of creative egos can lead to great personal tragedies—both for the artists themselves, and for the lovers who are drawn into their circles.

The talk will be accompanied by a slide show of the works their relationship generated, and it will be followed by discussion. 

Daniel Bullen is the author of The Love Lives of the Artists: Five Stories of Creative Intimacy (Counterpoint Press, 2011), and The Dangers of Passion: The Transcendental Friendship of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Margaret Fuller (Levellers Press, 2012).  He lives in western Massachusetts.

Join us on November 8 at 6:30 pm when author Daniel Bullen will talk about the marriage between Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O’Keeffe, who were married from 1924 until Stieglitz’ death in 1946.  Through creative downpours and droughts, through affairs and through nervous breakdowns, across great distances, artistic styles and temperaments, their enduring marriage describes the intersection of great individual talent and great devotion, and constitutes a work of art in itself.
