Winslow Homer Hour for the Arts @ South Ark Arts Center
January 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
A Lecture Series with Gay Bechtelheimer hosted Thursday Evenings at 6:30 p.m.
The evening of January 19 will be a special night at SAAC with the focus of Gay Bechtelheimer’s art talk on the American artist Winslow Homer. With his resolute independence and spirit of originality, he is considered one of the most important painters of the nineteenth century. His work figured importantly in developing an American artistic sensibility that was a source of influence for those of his own time and into the 20th century, particularly among artists who did not pursue European inspired trends and sought a distinctly American vision for their work.
