The SaddleBrooke Fine Arts Guild, in partnership with the University of Arizona Museum of Art, will present the second of their two-lecture series on Wednesday, October 4, 2017, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., in the west ballroom of the MountainView Clubhouse. The presenters will be docents Fleurette and Marc Wallach, and their subject will be Celebrating Women Artists. Throughout history, women artists have struggled for recognition and respect. The University of Arizona Museum of Art’s collection includes works by successful artists such as Marietta Tintoretto, Elizabeth Vigee LeBrun and Georgia O’Keeffe, as well as contemporary African American and Native American artists.
Fleurette and Marc, who are SaddleBrooke residents, come to us with impressive credentials. Marc was a docent at the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey, (outside Princeton) for five years, and Fleurette, who grew up in Philadelphia, studied at the Philadelphia Art Museum and the Barnes Foundation. She also was a docent at the Grounds for Sculpture before moving to Arizona.
Looking ahead, a new series of lectures will begin on Wednesday, January 3, 2018. Please mark your calendars and plan to come early for coffee. As always, the lectures are free and are in Ballroom West of the MountainView Clubhouse. We look forward to seeing you.
