Arts Speak Presentation with Rogena Degge – “Ways to Look at Art”
February 2, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
There is no right or wrong way to look at or talk about art. There are many ways. We all draw upon learned language or our own vocabulary in responding to art. This comes from our feelings and values as well as from schooling. The way we respond to art is also influenced by exposure to different cultural aesthetics and regional differences. Artists think about what they create based on these same kinds of backgrounds, values and experiences. By understanding conditioning and cultural influences, we gain insight, understanding of certain works and styles and most importantly, we develop a freedom to respond to art. We will explore some of these ideas through looking at and talking about art utilizing the current Aqueous exhibition.
