Whidbey Island Fine Art Studio announces a lecture with Gary Faigin, co-founder of the Gage Academy in Seattle, “10 European art masterworks that everyone should see before they die” at WICA at 6 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 22.
Join Seattle artist, art educator, tour leader and artist Gary Faigin for a lively hour of exploring 10 not-to-be-missed art experiences in Europe. These are culled from his many years of leading art tours to capitols like Rome, Paris, Madrid, and Berlin. More than simply a “best-of” list, this talk is a quick tour through some of the most compelling artist personalities and stories of Western Art…a rewarding evening even for the armchair traveler.
Tickets are $25. There is a no host bar. Please do get space ahead of time as seating is limited. If there is still space we will have tickets at the door also.
Gary Faigin is the Artistic Director and co-founder of the Gage Academy of Art in Seattle. He has led art tours to Europe for the past 20 years, including most of the important art centers from Budapest to Barcelona. He was the monthly art critic on Seattle’s NPR station, KUOW for ten years, and currently writes art reviews for the Seattle Times. He has also lectured at he Seattle Art Museum.
Gary Faigin is also the author of ‘The Artist’s Complete Guide to Facial Expression.” Further information can be obtained at www.garyfaigin.com.
