    Program events

    Join us for a lecture by Clare Elliott on the subject of Forrest Bess, a Gulf Coast abstract artist. The event will take place at The Printing Museum, 1324 West Clay Street, Saturday, March 2 at 11:00 a.m.

    A unique figure in the history of American art, Forrest Bess (1911-1977) lived an isolated existence in a fishing camp on the Gulf Coast. He painted visions that he saw in dream states, creating an abstract vocabulary that was mysterious, even to him, and he develop idiosyncratic theories about his work. “Forrest Bess: Painter-Fisherman” explores Bess’s curious and compelling abstractions and the letters that he wrote explaining how they relate do his theories of symbology and hermaphroditism.

    Clare Elliott is Associate Research Curator at the Menil Collection, Houston. In 2013 she curated “Forrest Bess: Seeing Things Invisible,” the first retrospective exhibition of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. Elliott received her M.A. in the history of art from Williams College in Massachusetts.

    Critiques

    VAA critiques are opportunities for artists to share their work with other artists. These are peer critiques in which everyone is invited to show work and discuss the work of others. You don’t have to bring work in order to show up.

    Work can be in any medium and artists may bring 1 to 10 pieces. Participants will be allowed as much time as possible depending on how many people are showing work.  Artists are encouraged to bring current pieces/projects they wish to discuss with others and get feedback on concept, technique, presentation, etc.

    Drinks and snacks will be provided (feel free to bring and share, too).

    VAA members and non-members are welcome to come. There is no fee.

    Great thanks to Vikki at Art Supply for hosting this event!
