Four Artists from Sustaining Arts Gallery
Sara Frucht, Usha Shukla, Salma Arastu and Julie Cohn share their artistic journeys and invite participants to discuss their art.
A Change in Perspective
Paul Cezanne had a profound influence on abstract art. He was inspired to interpret nature with a new kind of freedom.
Painting As a Poem
During the 1950s Joan Mitchell drew much inspiration from the abstract expressionists in New York. A passion for nature combined with living in the United States and France led her to imbue her art with poetic energy.
Declutter the mind and open sensibilities to the finely crafted shapes, colors and compositions of Kenzo Okada's and Usha Shukla's art. Geometric and irregular shapes fit together to make remarkable paintings.
Jump into the world of Hilma af Klint, Swedish artist who kept her metaphorical and transcendental paintings a secret during her own lifetime. Sara Frucht's art, featured also in this webinar, has a kinship with Hilma's creations.
The Inner Voice
Russian painter and writer, Wassily Kandinsky, drew inspiration from many other artists who explored abstract expressions in their respective art forms. His contribution to art was to elucidate on the WHAT of art and its importance over the HOW of art. He solidified and amplified the abstract art movement with his courageous and compelling art, inspiring others to find and honor their inner spiritual needs.
