2018 will be the best year yet - Please join us!

I am delighted to be offering another wonderful 
series of 8 lectures at 
Campbell House Museum this 
January and February.

News Flash!!!
Our next Campbell House Lecture Series 
will commence 
January 10, 2018

 that's a Wednesday, and run for 8 weeks. 
It will be from 1 to 3, in the Campbell House Ball Room.

Eight of The Greats

Our fall series was a terrific success. Picasso and Beyond: Art of the 20th Century is always an amusing romp through the history of modern art. We finish up this week with art of the African diaspora, which includes some of the strongest artists around these days.

The winter series will be Eight of The Greats. Eight artists that I love and I know you’ll enjoy. They are listed below. Once again I will need at least ten cheques  for $250 made out to me, Suzanne Tevlin, in my hand before we can get the go ahead from Campbell House. Feel free to post date your cheques to the 27th of December if you want. Just remember that the sooner I get your proof of interest the better the series will be. 

Just a slight change in plan:

Picasso & Beyond: Art of the 20th century

After a close look at Picasso and Matisse we will go on to discuss Surrealism, the New York Schools, the European Schools and the British Schools, including Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and David  Hockney. We will discuss the rise of women painters, the Harlem Renaissance and much more. 

The series will start on October 11, that's a Wednesday, and run for 8 weeks. 
It will be from 1 to 3, in the Campbell House Ball Room.

October 11 - Picasso – An artist of change and innovation, PP rewrote the story of art. He changed the rules and reconfigured the playing field. Love him or hate him, he’s an intensely interesting & disturbing character.

October 18, Matisse – The elegant & introverted Matisse, PP’s only rival, was all that PP was not. A colourist of extreme daring & sensitivity, he redefined the traditional palette.

October 25, Dada/Surrealism - Dali, Duchamp, Breton, Apollinaire, Man Ray, deChirico, Magritte, Carrington & all the rest - fascinated by Freud, delighted by the occult, this group created mayhem in a world already gone mad.

November 1, Blaue Reiter/Bauhaus/ Expressionism - Kandinsky, Klee, Frans Marc, Grosz, Munter, Dix, combined to create some of the most original and expressive art to surface to this day.

Nov 8, The London School – Freud, Hockney, Bacon, Aurbache, London, the swinging 60s, just imagine the excitement, the conversation, the experimentation. These brilliant artists all immerged at the same time, in the same town. Bliss.

November 15, The New York School
Pollack, Rothko, de Kooning, call them abstract expressionists, action painters, or charlatans they created work that was big, brash and American. Did you know, it was all secretly paid for by the CIA?

November 22, The Women Carr, Kahlo, O’Keeffe, Frankenthaler, Bourgeois, Schultz, Saar, Neel, Saville, Ringgold-this lecture will mention a few of the many women that have been overlooked.

November 29, Beyond The Harlem Renaissance – Wiley, Marshall, Walker, Bearden, Shonibare - there are so many fabulous artists from the African diaspora that I’ll just leave it at that and see how many others we can discuss on the day.

Is your work at a stand-still? Perhaps you're in a bit of an artistic rut? All artists, whether professional or amateur, trained or autodidact, need advice and constructive criticism to keep them moving along the road to creativity and self-expression. Suzanne offers in-house critiques to individual artists or small groups of artists.

Cost $250 per session (approx. 2 hrs)
