  • Empires - The Medici: Godfathers of the Renaissance
    Empires - The Medici: Godfathers of the Renaissance
    A fascinating and highly entertaining look at one of the most important families of the Renaissance era--the Medici.
  • Sister Wendy - The Complete Collection (Story of Painting / Grand Tour / Odyssey / Pains of Glass)
    Sister Wendy - The Complete Collection (Story of Painting / Grand Tour / Odyssey / Pains of Glass)

    “Sister Wendy Beckett has transformed public appreciation of art through her astonishing knowledge, insight and passion for painting and painters.” This set includes Sister Wendy's Story of Painting, Sister Wendy's Odyssey, and Sister Wendy's Grand Tour. Simultaneously delightful and scholarly--this is a must have for anyone interested in art history.

  • Exit Through the Gift Shop
    Exit Through the Gift Shop
    When British stencil artist Banksy traveled to Los Angeles to work, he came across obscure French filmmaker Thierry Guetta and his badly organized collection of videotapes involving the activities of graffiti artists. Inspired, Banksy assembled them with new footage to create this talked-about documentary, and the result is a mind-boggling and odd film (so strange as to be thought a hoax by some) about outsider artists and the definition of art itself.
  • The Impressionists
    The Impressionists
    A dramatization of the Impressionist movement as seen through the eyes of Claude Monet. Highly entertaining and informative.
  • The Impressionists: The Other French Revolution
    The Impressionists: The Other French Revolution
    A very personal and revealing look at the personalities that created Impressionism.

“Art Speaks” - Ossining Arts Council - Fall 2017

Featured Artists and Programs for OAC ‘Art Speaks’ - Fall 2017Yes…it’s Summer…and there’s still plenty of dog days to come. But…were are in August and the Fall will be here before we know it.

Starting up in September, I’ll once again be leading the Ossining Art Council’s (OAC) “Art Speaks” program, open to the general public. In this series of single-session programs—attendees learn about local community artists and their work—in the context of broader art movements and developments in art history. 

As always, we’ll be looking at a number of different types of art, as a way of familiarizing you with the many approaches to (and styles of) artistic production that exist. Artists don’t operate in a vacuum. We’re all part of the history of art.

Every featured artist will be bringing in pieces of original art and/or delivering a visual presentation and talk. The artists noted here each have a fascinating story to tell—so don’t miss these exciting afternoons.

OAC Steamer Firehouse Gallery - 117 Main Street - Ossining, NY - Sundays, 2-3:30 PM

Suggested Donation: $5 per session

OAC has a number of exciting events happening this Fall. Please visit the website and check Facebook for more details. 

It’s going to be an Awesome Autumn!
