You Are Invited to Books and Brushes!

I am leading the book club sessions at the Winnipeg Art Gallery in November and this is your invitation to join me!  Books and Brushes is a new venture. It’s designed for people who love books or love art or love both. The book we will discuss on on Tuesday November 21 from 11:30 am to 1 pm. and again on Friday November 24 from 7:30-9 pm is a perfect fit for Books and Brushes because it contains short essays by famous authors who describe their favorite art gallery or museum in the world. The book is called Treasure Palaces: Great Writers Visit Great Museums. It is edited by Maggie Fergusson.   McNally Robinson book store in the Grant Park Mall has stocked up on copies and they are available in their art writing section. The nice thing about a book of essays is you can read them one at a time whenever you have a few minutes and even if you don’t read them all you can still come and enjoy talking about the ones you have read with the other book club attendees. We will look at some of the artwork mentioned by the various essay writers and then we’ll go out into the galleries at the WAG.  I am excited about the ways I think we will be able to make connections between the artwork referred to in the book and the artwork in our current exhibits.  

You have to sign up to attend Books and Brushes and you can do so by e-mailing education@wag.ca

I’d love to see you there!
