New College of Florida Students and Ringling Museum Library Present Community Art Lecture Series, March-April 2011

(Sarasota, FL – March 7, 2011) — New College of Florida students are presenting the fourth annual “Sharing the Scholarship” art lecture series in collaboration with the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art Library on Mondays, from 3:30-5 p.m., March 7 through April 11 (except March 21) in the museum’s Johnson-Blalock Education Center (room 1003-1004) at 5401 Bay Shore Road. The lectures are free and open to the public.

The lectures feature 20th-century American artists and women artists through the ages beginning with Adelaide Labille-Guiard, one of the few women elected to the National Academy in Paris; 19th-century photographer Margaret Cameron and sisters Frances and Margaret Macdonald, who represent the Glasgow branch of Art Nouveau. The March 14 talk features sculptor Louise Nevelson and two female surrealists, Frida Kahlo and Remedios Varo. The feminist art of Audrey Flack and Kiki Smith will be the focus on March 28, and the idiosyncratic visions of Charles Burchfield and Philip Guston will be discussed April 4. The final lecture on April 11 will address the work of American artist Edward Hopper as well as James Turrell, whose work with light is about to be shown in a new permanent Ringling Museum Skyspace installation in the Searing Wing.
