Here's details of the forthcoming events in our calendar.
Annual General Meeting
Saturday 3rd July 2021
AGM followed by a talk by Gabriel Chanan on Renaissance Painting
Following the AGM there will be a talk by Gabriel Chanan, a researcher, playwright and entertaining public speaker with a lifelong interest in the visual arts. This fascinating look at Renaissance Painting gives a broad introduction and framework for understanding and appreciating it, focusing on the new techniques of the period such as perspective, foreshortening and dramatic use of light and shade. Whilst highlighting the best known artists such as Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael, it looks at how their techniques were first developed by earlier masters and how they were modified by later artists such as Caravaggio, Veronese and Artemisia Gentileschi. He also looks at the contrasts between the Italian and Dutch schools.
OAG Annual Exhibition
Saturday 21st - Monday 23rd August 2021
OAG ANNUAL EXHIBITION
The exhibition will be open for three full days, from 10am to 5pm each day and will show over 200 original works of art. Once again the OAG will join Hampshire Open Studios with a half page listing in their directory and we also intend to link in with OAG members and other local artists to co-promote a local 'art trail'. Let’s hope that by then we are virus free and that we have as successful a show as in previous years!
