Ideas and education

BRATTLEBORO "Adventures in Looking" presented by Mara Williams : Artists invest a considerable amount of their intellect, emotions, senses, and spirituality to give outward form to their inner voice. One of the great joys of viewing art is tussling meaning out of an object made by another human being. Central to this effort is the object's physicality. Exploring how surface texture, formal relationships, gestural nuance, palette or patina support the content of the artwork is a rewarding endeavor. Join three discussions analyzing works of modern and contemporary art led by the Chief Curator of the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center. 1 - 3 p.m. (Continues 1/20 and 1/27; snow date 2/3). Offered by the Brattleboro branch of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. $6 per session ($15 for all 3). New England Youth Theatre, 100 Flat St. Information: 802-365-7278, julielavorgna@gmail.com.
