In Just Looking*, Laguna Beach artist Hedy Buzan invites art lovers to look at a few paintings just the way an artist does: slowly and carefully. Participants will spend an hour closely looking at three works from Wayne Thiebaud: American Memories, currently on view at Laguna Art Museum.
Looking at work slowly and meditatively enhances the art viewing experience. Each painting will be considered for twenty minutes as Buzan leads viewers in an informal and lively discussion. By looking at the elements of line, shape, color, and texture, viewers slow down and make discoveries, developing a deeper appreciation of the animating force that is present in great painting.
*Please note that this event is replacing One Hour/One Painting, previously scheduled with Peter Clothier.
