Last Chance to Learn to See the Art of Harry Sefarbi!

Don't miss this exciting opportunity to learn to see and understand the unique and sensual paintings of Harry Sefarbi (1917-2009). This class corresponds with the special exhibition, Harry Sefarbi: A Retrospective, held at the Wayne Art Center from September 21st through November 15th in their Main Gallery.

The Violette de Mazia Foundation will conduct a 3-session class to be held in conjunction with the first retrospective of Sefarbi's art work in twelve years. Taught in the midst of one hundred of his paintings, students will have the benefit of the direct observation of his work in the exhibition. A prolific painter as well as a teacher at the Barnes Foundation for over 50 years, he dedicated his life to art. This course will explore the connections between the visual ideas Sefarbi employed in painting and teaching through the evolution of his creative development.
