The Silvermine Art Guild continues their lecture series with another presentation by Wilton resident David Dunlop: He is discussing “The Culture, Science and Art of Color”
Silvermine folks say that Dunlop’s lectures sell out quickly, often with standing room only.
In this lecture, Dunlop brings to light answers to questions such as: What do colors mean in paintings, in other cultures, in history…? How do we perceive color and use it, mix it, find it and make it? What are its effects on romance, or suggesting time of day or direction or mood in a painting, on a garment or on a wall? He will also discuss color theories from the Impressionists, the Renaissance, the Modernists and today’s contemporary designers and artists.
Dunlop has been a teacher at the Silvermine School of Art since 1993. His work is nationally known and featured in many prominent collections throughout the world. He also hosted and wrote the 2009 Emmy Award-winning PBS television series “Landscapes Through Time.”
Tickets are $10 for members, $12 for the rest of us.
