at the San Juan Community Theatre – This Weekend!

(IMA) The San Juan Islands Museum of Art & Sculpture Park in partnership with Spring Street International School present:

Reawakening the Renaissance – An afternoon with Kurt Wenner

March 12th at 3:30pm

Spend an Afternoon with world-renowned artist and inventor of 3D pavement art Kurt Wenner, as he recounts a fascinating journey that started in Rome and took him around the world.  Wenner’s studies of the European classical tradition found it to be a language of form with ancient roots that is still a valid vehicle for artistic expression.  His studies and works include drawings, paintings, sculpture, architecture, and decorative arts; as well as innovative contemporary media.

Admission includes entry to the Artist Reception, immediately following the presentation in the theatre lobby. Present your ticket stub for a free glass of wine or sparkling cider!

Buried Brilliance – The Lost Language of Classical Design

March 13th at 2:00pm

European art has left a mountain of astounding masterpieces in painting, sculpture, and architecture, but today it is often a mystery as to how these feats of human expression were accomplished.  Kurt Wenner will demonstrate the structural nature of classical design and drawing; with live drawing demonstrations of geometry, proportion, and a figure study from Michelangelo.  He will show how the classical tradition is not a style, but an actual language of form based on a profound knowledge and appreciation of the physical universe.  An image by Michelangelo will be projected and accompanied by a live feed camera on Wenner’s hand as he demonstrates how the Old Masters created their work.

About ruthoffen

Created by, Ruth Offen the founder/director of WaterWorks Gallery, a gallery opened in 1985 to showcase contemporary artists and jewellers that live and work in the Pacific Northwest. The gallery is on an San Juan Island in the Salish Sea.[ North Puget Sound] Pretty amazing place. While continuing to curate the gallery after 33 years, I'm decided to spend more time enjoying life by traveling, creating art with photography and dancing tango. Over many decades of amassing a personal art collection, now the process of downsizing is becoming a reality. How do we have more with less? Staying true to the motto, unencumbered by our possessions and not burdening our children with our stuff. This next process will take patience and courage.
