ART HISTORY LECTURE SERIES on Zoom

March 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until March 23, 2021

Hycroft, 1489 McRae Avenue
Vancouver, BC V6H 1V1 Canada
$90

Lecturer:  Jessa Alston-O’Connor is a Vancouver-based art educator and art historian. She holds an MA in Art History from Concordia University and draws from over 15 years of experience in developing, facilitating and teaching art history and art education programs in museums, arts organizations and universities across Canada. These include the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Vancouver Biennale and she currently teaches Art History at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Her work lies in the spaces between artwork and audience, and her focus is always to help make art engaging, meaningful and accessible for anyone.

Topic:  The 17th century Golden Dutch Baroque was one of the most phenomenal and explosive periods in European art. It has been estimated that between five and ten million works of art had been produced during the century of the Golden Age of Dutch Art. We will explore this rise of the Dutch landscape, still life, portraiture and genre painting that flourished in the Netherlands and created an art market never before seen in Europe. Why the Netherlands, and what factors there made this the right time for such art to prosper? Who were some of the key artists of this golden century? Learn more about the artists and times of this remarkable period in Western Art History.

Registration required. Minimum of 12 persons for lecture series to take place.
