6-8:45pm: Personal Letters: Expressing Ourselves through a Mixed-Media Dialogue
Kimball Education Gallery
de Young Artist-in-Residence Susan Tonkin Riegel is a mixed-media artist who loves the language of symbols and archetypes. Her spontaneous and intuitive process records glimpses of her personal life and dreams. The studio will be an intimate space for visitors to find their artistic voices by using acrylic paint, pastels, graphite, thread, and paper to create letters expressing personal intentions. The intentions can be wishes, prayers, or anything that calls forth new blessings and directions in life. The letters will then be encapsulated in clear acetate and suspended from the ceiling.
7-8:30pm: Special Lecture | “The Engaging Gaze: Portraiture from Leonardo to Vermeer”
What transforms a painting into a celebrity? Leonardos Mona Lisa and Vermeers Girl with a Pearl Earring each create a dynamic visual relationship that engages the viewer in a series of unanswered questions. Sunnie Evers is a scholar, teacher, visiting lecturer, and fundraiser.
