Points of View: The Painter's Choices
July 3–August 30
Tue–Thu at 2:30
Artists make many decisions during the creative process. Some are made consciously and deliberately. Others erupt spontaneously while the artist works. By comparing such elements as color, line, composition, texture, and the degree of realism or abstraction an artist has employed, docents explore the way in which these choices affect the viewer's reactions to paintings in our collection. This wide-ranging tour may include surprising combinations of works chosen by the docent leading it.
