HAMMOND - The second lecture in the fall series of “Let’s Talk: Art,” sponsored
jointly by Southeastern Louisiana University’s Department of Visual Art + Design and
the Friends of Sims Library, will be held Oct. 11, at 5:30 p.m., at Southeastern’s
Contemporary Art Gallery. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Southeastern Assistant Professor of Painting Tom Walton will present “Why Draw a Line in the Sand? A Contemporary View on the Relationship between Abstract and Representational Painting.”
“When abstract painting came into fashion, the emphasis was on defining the new art form in relationship to the previous one, which was essential at the time to create an artistic identity,” said Sims Memorial Library Director Eric Johnson. “This talk is an exploration of the relationship between the two approaches, representation and abstract, as a fertile ground for continued growth in painting.”
