I will have a presentation this week and a solo exhibit opening at the Academy Gallery

If you come to my presentation this Thursday Nov 2, 7:00pm, at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art, you can also preview my solo exhibit of new work, “A Plein Air Exploration of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast,” which will have just been installed the previous day. My presentation, “Narration and the Fleeting Moment,” is an art history with respect to our understanding of human vision, particularly emphasizing advances in our understanding of vision made in the 19th century. It explores how art advanced our understanding of vision and also how modern vision science can return the favor and help advance art. Separately from my presentation, there will be a reception for my exhibit Saturday, Nov 4, 5-7pm. Here are a few images of paintings that will be included:
