Artists in Conversation – Online!
The conversation between Adrian Saxe and Richard Shaw drew a record audience to the gallery. On February 9, over 70 people came to hear the two artists talk about their work. Now we have documentation of the event to share with you.
I’ve been working on the gallery’s education program for 17 years now. Artist talks, walk-throughs and conversations are part of that mission. The topics of the conversations have ranged, as the diverse resources of the gallery—from artists to writers to critics—are brought together to discuss the issues of contemporary art.
In the past, the gallery offered a class on art collecting that comprised of a series of talks, titled “The First Class, Parts One and Two”. Speakers came from the museum world, such as the late Henry Hopkins, former Director of the UCLA Hammer Museum, and Charlotte Eyerman, former curator at the Getty Museum. Highly recognized journalists, including Suzanne Muchnic, staff art writer at the Los Angeles Times for 3 decades, and Hunter Drohojowska-Philp, author of biographies on Georgia O’Keefe and Craig Kauffman, gave lectures.
This service (yes, all of our programs are open to the public and free of charge) has been intended to provide a forum for discussion and a resource for the art community of Los Angeles. For the last two years, I’ve worked to make these available to the audience through new media. Our digital publications are available online through Issuu, and more Frank Lloyd Gallery videos can be found on our Vimeo channel.
