Lecture / Discussion | My Appreciation of Watercolor: A Personal View with Tullis Johnson
Tullis Johnson: Don’t Think About the Medium
Friday, November 15, 2013, 12:30–1 pm
In an interview from 1959, Charles Burchfield told interviewer John D. Morse, “I couldn’t possibly tell anybody how to paint in watercolor….I told them: ‘Don’t think about the medium. What you’re trying to say is much more important than what you’re saying it with.” This presentation will focus on Burchfield’s unique use of the watercolor medium. Unfinished works that reveal his technique and other works that might be called multimedia will be examined and discussed.
Free with gallery admission.
