DEC 11 Gallery Talk: “Shape, Color, and Pattern”

A feast for the eyes!

Looking for some artistic and intellectual nourishment during your lunch break? Join us on Wednesdays throughout the winter for short gallery talks to explore highlights from special exhibitions and NMWA’s collection with museum staff.

This week, join Associate Educator Addie L. Gayoso to explore how artists Anni Albers and Valerie Jaudon masterfully composed simple design elements like shape, color, and pattern to develop visually complex works of art.


Both Anni Albers’s dichromatic serigraph, Untitled (1969), and Valerie Jaudon’s earth-toned painting, Bay St. Louis (1973), blurred the traditional boundaries between decorative art and fine art.
