Art Studio Lectures
Informal lectures are held in a comfortable
Berkeley, California studio and garden easily accessible by
public transportation. We often lunch together and have shared
friendships and activities with those who enjoy the arts.
Join us for a lectures series, including guided tours of art
exhibits in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Past and Current Art Trends
Combine theory with the visual experience by getting a thorough
introduction to past and current art trends before experiencing
the artwork. An academically trained art historian, Barbara
Rydlander provides a wealth of information through exciting
lectures and an extensive slide collection.
Lectures are designed to inspire members to share their enthusiasm
about lecture topics, which have ranged from recent archaeological
discoveries in China to African-American artists during the
Harlem Renaissance, as well as contemporary electronic / multimedia
to the history of English gardens.
