Art and architecture gallery education

A TALK on Architecture will headline the 2018 Art Education Program at the Stanthorpe Art Gallery.

"These presentations are intended as an extension to the current Floor Talks given by exhibiting artists. They provide art lovers on the Granite Belt with a deeper understanding and appreciation of modern and contemporary art practices and associated areas of artistic expression. The presenters are all professionals including artists, university lecturers, art teachers and art collectors and evaluators,” Stanthorpe Art Gallery Director, Mary Findlay, explained.

The talk entitled "Architecture: Who would have thought?" on Thursday 15 February at 10.30 a.m. will be given by Leonardo Arcidiacono, a practising architect since 1983 and Architectural Design Teacher at the Southbank Institute of Technology since 1997.

Leonardo will provide an overview of architecture's relationship with past civilizations and how it impacts on our daily lives, and how architecture's multi-disciplinary nature sees it drawing from the sciences, the arts, psychology, mathematics, climate and even politics, to achieve its objectives.

"If you enjoy watching, 'Grand Designs', then this talk will be of interest to you", Mary said.
