Art lovers everywhere are fully aware of what it means to be obsessed with an artist, art movement or particular piece. Artist and obsessor Ken Kewley is also aware. This July, Kewley will be a visiting artist at the Washington Studio School, giving a talk on the artist who inspires him most: Georges Braque. And on August 22, Kewley will be back in the district do conduct a workshop at the Phillips in conjunction with the exhibit.
The talk is July 11 from 3:30-5pm and if you're interested RSVP here.
If you can't make it to the artist talk, be sure to check out the exhibit itself. Georges Braque and the Cubist Still Life, 1928-1945 will be open until September 1 at the Phillips Collection. It's a wonderful opportunity to see four of Braque's paintings known as the Rosenburg Quartet together for the first time in 80 years. There will also be many other pieces that display Braque's artistic prowess, as well as his individuality in the art movements of the 1920's-1930's. Since the founder of the Phillips Collection, Duncan Phillips, was a huge patron of Braque since the '20s, it is the perfect time to fulfill that urge to see some Cubism.
