Wolf Kahn to speak at BMAC

Thursday October 4, 2012

BRATTLEBORO -- In a public lecture on Sunday at 7 p.m. at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, renowned artist Wolf Kahn considers the roles of "Planning and Spontaneity in Art." Tickets are $10, $5 for museum members. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. Call 802-257-0124, ext. 101, or visit www.brattleboromuseum.org for more information.

Kahn, whose professional career has spanned more than six decades, is a leading figure in American art.

Following his lecture, Kahn will sign books, posters and other memorabilia.

Since 1968, Wolf Kahn and his wife Emily Mason have spent summers and autumns in southern Vermont, where the hills, barns, woods and skies have provided inspiration for countless paintings and drawings. Kahn’s rich and expressive body of work represents a synthesis of his modern abstract training with Hans Hofmann, the palette of Matisse, Rothko’s sweeping bands of color and the atmospheric qualities of American Impressionism.
