Contemporary Artist Series: Stacy Lynn Waddell
Durham artist Stacy Lynn Waddell will give a talk about how her work connects--and does not connect--with such Old Masters as Carlo Dolci. Her talk is part of the Contemporary Artist Series--three artists who share how their work connects with the special ticketed exhibition, "The Medici's Painter: Carlo Dolci and 17th-Century Florence." Light and shadow, detail and abstraction, composition and tension, capturing a subject's gaze-these issues tested old master painters like Carlo Dolci, who influenced many generations of artists. The artists in this series will talk about how they pull from a long tradition of portraiture, how they are inspired by and grapple with faith in their work and how their work connects, and does not connect, to a larger history. The talk is free and open to all.
