Artscapades: Fauvism and Beyond
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Friends of Weston Library welcome ArtScapades back for a second lecture you can watch in your own home…via ZOOM! 

 

Here’s what you have to do….go to westonpubliclibrary.org and register through their calendar, and you will receive a link to join to watch Fauvism and Beyond: From Color to Form.

 

Just before 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 16th, make yourself comfortable, grab a drink, maybe even your dinner, and click on the link you were sent to join the ZOOM presentation…then sit back and watch Fauvism and Beyond.  

 

ArtScapades will look at the beginnings of Modern Art starting with two artists, Henri Matisse and André Derain, who explored a new freedom and spontaneity in painting, characterized by vibrant color, and expressive brushstrokes, defining the influential avant-garde art movement.
