1999 Second Thursday Panels at the Carmel Art Association


Dick Crispo

The Carmel Art Association is pleased to present Second Thursday Panels for 1999, a series of six panel discussions moderated by artist, lecturer and art historian Dick Crispo. On the second Thursday of every other month beginning in February, Crispo will moderate a discussion by four artists who will delve into a specific topic related to art and artists. The panels, composed of different artists each month, will include two artist members of the Carmel Art Association. Each discussion will be preceded by a brief introductory lecture by Crispo.

In February, the first panel of artists will discuss watercolor, why they chose the medium, what is next, and what is currently happening in art pertaining to watercolor. April's panel will focus on the artist's role in the information age, how it has affected their work, if at all. June's subject will be about oil and acrylic painting, the differences and the history of each, what changes have occurred for the panelists and their work, and their reasons for preferring one or the other. The topic for August is abstract art. Panelists will talk about its history and their own reasons for creating non-representational art. In October, four sculptors will discuss sculpture--its role in today's homes and offices and what is happening in sculpture today. The human figure will be the final topic in December as a panel looks at the purpose of the figure in art: in beauty, social protest, portraiture and as the "pin-up"

Each event -- held at the Carmel Art Association on Dolores Street between 5th and 6th -- begins at 7 p.m. and is free to the public.. No reservations are needed, and seating is on a first come, first serve basis.
