Reading Group

Encounter new ideas to energize your studio practice. Reading about painting can suggest new directions for your work. It can help us understand the historical context that we are working in. It gives us a vocabulary to help clarify what our projects are about.  How do we fit into the history of painting? What is important to us as artists working today? We will discuss around 25 pages each session, and work our way through some art history together!

Sept 9, Sept 23, Oct 7, Oct 21, Nov 4, Nov 18, Dec 2, Dec 16.
