You’ll recall last year that I wrote about how the National Gallery of Art offers writing and drawing salons seasonally (during the fall, winter and spring). I’m delighted to share that the salons are back! In fact, I’m a little late to the party: the first salons have already happened! Here is the schedule for the remaining salon events:
- Character: The Power of Detail (November 2018)
- Perspective: Inside Out (January/February 2019)
- Setting: Capturing Place (February 2019)
- Story: The Narrative Arc (March 2019)
- Poetry: Movement and Meaning (April/May 2019)
- Rachel Whiteread and Sculpting Memory (November/December 2018)
- El Greco’s Expressive Figures (January/February 2019)
- Illuminating American Landscapes (March 2019)
- The Portraits of Sir Anthony van Dyck (April/May 2019)
Kudos to the National Gallery of Art for expanding the schedule to accommodate more participants during this salon season. I recall the years when the events were held over three days only. However, this year (and last year, if I recall correctly), each theme has up to 8 different dates for attendees! More people can participate in these events with all of these dates available.
I plan to attend several salons this year. I didn’t make it to any last year, but I should have a lot more schedule flexibility over the next few months. If you decide to attend, I’ll see you there!
